XI beat Norwich

Our Spurs XI team delivered a five-star show in the second half to beat Norwich City 4-0 in a training ground friendly on Wednesday.

Tim Sherwood admitted he was less than pleased with the first half display against the Canaries at Spurs Lodge.

It remained goalless in that first 45 minutes but goalkeeper Oscar Jansson was called on a few times to keep the visitors at bay.

At the other end, Paul Jose M'poku struck the woodwork and Sandro saw an effort cleared off the line.

It was all change in the second half though.

Kudus Oyenuga opened the scoring five minutes into the half after Harry Kane unselfishly drew the goalkeeper and squared for the striker to slot home.

It was soon 2-0 as Kyle Naughton and M'poku released Nathan Byrne into the box, he beat a couple of defenders and crossed for Oyenuga to head onto the crossbar and Tom Carroll was there to bury the rebound.

The third goal arrived after 75 minutes with Kane maintaining his fine run of form in front of goal, latching onto Carroll's precise pass before finishing one-on-one.

Jesse Waller Lassen completed the scoring in the 83rd minute when he finished well from a tight angle.

"I was pleased because we recovered from a poor passing performance in the first half," said Tim.

"I said at half-time that we had to pick things up in the second half and it almost means more to be able to turn things around like that. It shows real character.

"Apart from that, it was great to see Sandro get another 90 minutes and I've got to say Kyle Naughton's attitude was fantastic."
