It was a night of celebration for most Tottenham players as they defeated Bayern Munich in the Audi Cup final to lift the pre-season trophy. Spurs beat the German hosts on penalties after the match finished 2-2 in normal time.

However, it wasn’t all smiles for the Lilywhites as there was one casualty in the trophy win in the form of young Juan Foyth.

While Kyle Walker-Peters occupied the right-back berth in the first half, Foyth was subbed on to gain some more experience in his newly-converted role at Spurs.

This comes after he appeared once as a right-back for Tottenham last season and multiple times for Argentina in the Copa America this summer.

The 21-year-old seemed to go over on his ankle off the ball when defending a cross in the second half, instantly gesturing to the bench that it was serious.

While he attempted to hobble off, Foyth was eventually hoisted onto a stretcher and taken down the tunnel.

Pochettino has revealed that Foyth was in a lot of pain and believes that he has twisted his ankle, but they would have more of an idea over the coming hours and days.

Poch said (Football London): “No because I need to talk with the doctor now. He twisted his ankle but at the moment I cannot update. I saw when he was leaving the pitch and he said to me it was his ankle and it was very painful. I don’t know but for sure we will get an update in the next few hours or days.”
