Tottenham began their tour of the US with a resounding 4-1 win over AS Roma in the International Champions Cup.

Both sides were missing a number of key players due to injuries and extended breaks after the World Cup and it was the Serie A side that started the brightest, as Patrik Schick scored in the third-minute.

We were having a bit of a crisis as Ben Davies was played in the heart of the defence and Luke Amos was playing alongside Moussa Sissoko in midfield.

And it was Amos who had a huge role in our first goal as his shot was blocked. However, Fernando Llorente headed home.

The Spaniard made it two as Lucas Moura’s header was saved by Antonio Mirante. Lucas scored a brace too as he first headed in from Serge Aurier and then scored from outside the box to make it 4-1 at half-time.

There were a number of chances for Edin Dzeko to cut the deficit but the Roma man just could not get the better of Paulo Gazzaniga and the match ended 4-1 in our favour.

It was great to see the Spurs team still doing well without a number of our key players and our fans certainly seemed pleased with the win, especially with the braces scored by Lucas and Llorente.

Here is a selection of tweets after the victory over the Italians.
