In a defence that included Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen, and Juan Foyth, it was young Japhet Tanganga who stood out to be against Juventus earlier this week.
The 20-year-old centre-back lined up alongside Alderweireld in the first 45, and came up against the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Mario Mandzukic.
However, Tanganga looked comfortable with the challenge, confident on the ball, and skilful in defence. While he seems good with the ball at his feet, he was also well aware of when to carry it out and when to get rid.
Judging by these highlights, he could have a bright future at Tottenham:

Showing promising signs of a CB in the pre-season tour. Have a watch.
