It was an impressive start to Tottenham’s pre-season in San Diego, with Mauricio Pochettino’s side off to winning ways with a 4-1 victory against Serie A outfit AS Roma in the International Champions Cup.

Fernando Llorente and Lucas Moura both bagged two goals apiece during a clinical first 45 minutes for the men in white to put the game beyond their Italian opposition.

This performance will surely give Pochettino’s players some extra confidence ahead of the upcoming matches against Barcelona and AC Milan.

It was also great to see some of the younger players given a chance to impress, rather than making up tour numbers. Luke Amos and Oliver Skipp both tasted the opportunity of some first-team action.

Below, we have put together a match action gallery for those of you who were fast asleep during the game.

  1. The impressive performance on the pitch certainly does not extend to our new first choice kit. An utter abomination from almost every aesthetic perspective. I cannot recall a worse designed Spurs first team strip ever. It’s unbelievable that Nike would sign a contract with us for 30 million quid per season and then go out and design a product as bad as that. Surely there is someone responsible for quality control or marketing co-ordination at the club who could have stepped in and rejected all of these horrible, cheap-looking, retro designs?

  2. Totally agree mate – I think it’s just an awful looking shirt, it makes players look unathletic in some way – not sure exactly how, but it’s either the curves that suggest a bit of a gut, or it looks like they’re shorts are hiked up too high. Either way, it just sucks and it certainly if it isn’t flattering on our players, it probably wont look too great on the average punter. It’s a very lazy, uninspiring and frankly BORING shirt – and the home kit is thr better of the two I’ve seen, the away kit I wouldn’t be caught dead in
    Anyways, good result last night, good to see Moura get a few and hope he plays a much bigger role this season. COYS
    NIKE SUCKS
