For one night, thousands of soccer fans traded their Minnesota United jerseys to cheer for some of the best players in the world, as England's Tottenham Hotspur faced Italy's AC Milan in the International Champions Cup.

Christian Eriksen says the World Cup served as a great advertisement for Tottenham, showing that the club boasts some of the top players on the planet. The quality of time that we spent together, training and competing with big sides like Roma, Barcelona and Milan and the way they behaved made us very happy. "That is the most important thing", he said.

Tottenham recorded a hard fought 1-0 win over AC Milan at US Bank Stadium in their final US tour game on Wednesday.

"We had nine players in the semis, which means of course that our team out here is different to what it would usually be".

A possible return to Spurs has inevitably been mooted, but Pochettino laughed when the notion was raised during his side's pre-season tour of the US.

Asked specifically whether he would have any issue with starting 21-year-old Luke Amos, given Spurs' problems in central midfield, Pochettino replied: "After four years, in my fifth year, you think I'm going to be scared to play him?".

But Davies feels the squad's experience of adapting to Wembley, and the fact the club and supporters will be back in their own territory, will speed up the settling-in process.

Many of them feel that he has no future at the club, is well below the standard of the players he is competing with for a first-team place and his goals in America may serve only to raise his price once Spurs decide to sell him.

"Last season I told you some numbers, but this season we don't know", he told reporters.

"We are in the front row, I love soccer so much, it's my favorite sport", said Landry Haven, a young soccer player who came to Minnesota from Kentucky to see the match with her dad.

"Football is about energy, about desire, about respect for yourself and your teammates, being professional". Of course, Luke Amos is a good example.

The Tottenham stars kicked field goals, with three players making their attempts. I'm more than fearless and if I believe in some players I go with all the consequences'.
