Tottenham Hotspur vs. Manchester United at the International Champions Cup: Why it matters
Spurs beat Juventus 3-2 in their 2019 ICC opener, with Harry Kane scoring a stoppage-time winner in a dramatic match. Spurs went up 1-0 on an Erik Lamela goal, gave away the lead via two second-half goals in a five-minute span (to Gonzalo Higuain and Cristiano Ronaldo), then got level courtesy of Lucas Moura. Though the London squad couldn’t deliver a Champions League trophy after valiantly reaching the finals, it’s back in Champions League and is poised to join Man City and Liverpool in what should be a very competitive Premier League race this upcoming season.
United, which finished sixth in the league last season, opened its ICC campaign by beating Inter Milan 1-0. Paul Pogba, who’s on the squad for the time being, may be en route to Real Madrid if transfer rumors are to be believed—depending on another set of transfer rumors involving Gareth Bale. Given that the ICC allows for multiple subs in a match, fans will get a chance to see United’s future as well as its present if it’s anything like the last match: 17-year-old academy player Mason Greenwood scored the game-winner to lift his team over Inter, even as Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford featured.
