Live streaming - Academy set for Florida finale
22 December 2013|Tottenham Hotspur
John McDermott wants to see more of the same from our Academy players when they take on Cruzeiro in their final outing in the IMG Cup in Florida today – a game that’s being streamed live here on tottenhamhotspur.com.
Academy Manager John was delighted with the performance of our youngsters as they thumped the USA Under-17 national side 6-2 on Friday – a result that followed swiftly on from a 2-2 draw against Baltimore Celtic on Thursday, and a 3-0 win over Mexican outfit Queretaro the day before.
The lads, who have been in Florida since last Sunday, face their fourth and final outing of the tournament today (1pm UK time, 8am local time), coming up against Brazilian side Cruzeiro in a winner-takes-all showdown.
“The challenge for the players is to find a level of consistency in what has turned out to be the tournament final,” John said.
“The winners of this game will be crowned champions.”
The lads will fly back to the UK after the game today and, whatever happens, it’s been a very productive week in which our youngsters have tested themselves against some very tough overseas opponents.
