XI run riot!

Our Spurs XI put a Crystal Palace side to the sword with an 8-0 friendly victory at Spurs Lodge on Tuesday.

Academy forward Harry Kane hit five of the goals as Tim Sherwood's young side ran riot against the South Londoners, who included first team players Lewis Price, Alassane N'Diaye and Calvin Andrew in their XI.

Jake Livermore opened the scoring on five minutes before Kudus Oyenuga made it two just 10 minutes later. Harry opened his account on 21 minutes and had given us a 4-0 lead before the break.

Kudus scored his second just after half-time before 17-year-old Harry struck three more times in an impressive second half performance.

Kyle Naughton also stood out in a display coach Tim was quick to praise, saying: "We were just too strong for them on the day, but it's not about how many we win or lose by, it's about performances and I think we performed well and moved the ball around nicely.

"It's important when you are so on top in games that you don't take your foot off the gas, and they went about their business in a very professional way."
