Roma snatch late win over Spurs in ill-tempered 'friendly'

Roma snatch late win over Spurs in ill-tempered 'friendly'

Walker-Peters moved to the left - where he played for England's U20 World Cup winners - as a wing-back, while Carter-Vickers was one of three centre-backs alongside Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen.

Both sides fielded their strongest lineups in the first half before making changes at half time.

League title holders Chelsea have also spent heavily on players in the current window and have added striker Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid for a club record fee. Vincent Janssen equalised in stoppage time before Marco Tumminello's last-second sucker-punch condemned Spurs to defeat.

It's not just the young players that are fighting for their place in the squad.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has mocked some of the big spending going on in the Premier League this summer and has said it is "impossible for it to be sustainable".

Cengiz Under, a reported Spurs target, was on the scoresheet for Roma.

Representatives from the agencies managing the incident will provide an operational briefing and be available for questions. The blaze came within 35 miles (56 kilometers) of Yosemite, where campgrounds were open, park spokesman Scott Gediman said.

New television deals combined with ambitious - née foolhardy - owners fueled by petrodollars have conspired to inflate the transfer market beyond reason, and many clubs are gleefully shrugging their shoulders as they empty their pockets.

So far Spurs are yet to bring in any new signings this summer with their only major bit of transfer business to sell Kyle Walker to Manchester City for £50million.

New arrival from Sassuolo Lorenzo Pellegrini played in the loss to PSG and Roma fans could get a glimpse of Aleksandar Kolarov and Gregoir Defrel against Spurs.

After the U21 European Championship, Kane found the net just once in his first 13 games of the 2015-16 season, which he finished with 25 league goals, and it was a similar story last season following Euro 2016.

Spurs, who finished seven points behind Chelsea, dropped 11 points in six games in October and November previous year. Last season's Premier League and Serie A runners-up were at each other from the very start of the game, with challenges flying in throughout.
