NFL star Kelvin Beachum can't wait to welcome 'my Tottenham Hotspur' to the USA this summer!

We're heading back to the States for the fifth time in seven years, this time for three fascinating matches in the International Champions Cup in July.

We face reigning French champions Paris Saint-Germain at the Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida on Saturday, July 22 (kick-off 8pm local/1am UK)*, before heading to New Jersey to take on Italian giants AS Roma at the Red Bull Arena on Tuesday, July 25 (kick-off 8pm local/1am UK)*.

Our final match of the tour is an all-English encounter with Manchester City, held at the Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee on Saturday, July 29 (kick-off 5pm local/11pm UK)*.

Kelvin's eyes have been drawn to the match against Roma in New Jersey – where he'll get the chance to watch us on his doorstep.

Offensive tackle Kelvin told us of his love for Spurs last summer – ahead of following in our footsteps by playing at Wembley Stadium for the Jacksonville Jaguars in their NFL match-up against Indianapolis Colts, just weeks after we'd played Champions League football at the iconic venue.

Since then, he's switched from the Jaguars to the New York Jets, so it's no surprise that the announcement of our ICC match against Roma in New Jersey brought a huge smile to his face!

"The US and the UK are both fiercely passionate about and loyal to their sports clubs and teams," he told us after the ICC fixture announcement.

"I always enjoy playing in London and interacting with the fans overseas and am equally excited to welcome my Tottenham Hotspur onto US soil, and specifically New Jersey, to see them play first hand – a luxury I don't get to experience often."
