Tottenham Hotspur have added another friendly against French league outfit OGC Nice
According to Football.London, Tottenham Hotspur have booked another friendly against French league outfit OGC Nice as Antonio Conte gets ready to get his squad in shape ahead of the return of the Premier League.
It was announced earlier that Spurs will be facing Scottish outfit Motherwell FC in a friendly for the players to boost their match fitness after a break of more than a month due to the FIFA World Cup.
Now, just five days before the first official game against Brentford, Spurs have added one more friendly against OGC Nice to build the momentum going into the second half of the season.
Nice, who are ninth in the league table with 20 points from 15 games, haven’t faced Spurs in a competitive fixture in their history. As far as transfer dealings go, Noe Pamarot’s arrival a little under two decades ago was the last time a player left Nice’s senior squad to join Tottenham or vice versa.
This can be an opportunity for Tottenham to form new beginnings with Les Aiglons. Spurs are in a good position sitting third in the league currently after a bright start to the season and will look to start the second half of the season on a similar note as the first.
With talisman Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris set to make each other in the quarter-final of the tournament, it would be nice to see one of our very own getting their hands on the prestigious trophy.
Ivan Perisic with Croatia, who were the World Cup finalists last time, would also be looking to cause an upset on the exciting tournament favourites Brazil and advance to the next round.
The rest of the first-team players who represented their nations at the World Cup have been eliminated from the tournament and will join their club teammates back after a week’s rest.
