Tottenham Hotspur's youngsters have been playing at an academy tournament in Holland.

Talented youngsters in Tottenham Hotspur's academy continue to show signs of a bright future for the club.

New coach Mauricio Pochettino has relied upon players like Harry Kane, Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb this season, who have all come through the youth system.

Several teenagers are hoping to follow in their footsteps, and the academy squad has impressed over the past few days at a youth tournament in Holland.

The Terborg tournament consisted of 10 teams, including Liverpool and Spurs, competing against sides from Holland, Brazil, Mexico and South Africa.

Tottenham reached the final, beating Brazilian side Atletico Mineiro in the semis, before losing to Fluminense.

Finishing as runners-up was certainly an achievement for the young side and coach Matt Wells told Tottenham Hotspur's club website there were three players who stood out for him.

These were goalkeeper Harry Voss, defender Christian Maghoma and midfielder Harry Winks, who was voted the player of the tournament by organisers.

He said: "Harry (Winks) was excellent throughout the tournament and he’s come out of it with two goals as well, which is something we’ve been speaking about in terms of how it’s important not just to make goals but to score them too.

"Christian Maghoma in defence was excellent over the three days as well. He’s grown game-by-game and he’s making more headers, clearances and blocks than he ever has done. Harry Voss had a good tournament in goal and there have been other positive performances as well."

Spurs also had promising players like Kyle Walker-Peters, Josh Onomah, Nathan Oduwa and Shayon Harrison as part of their side, part of the core of their team which reached the FA Youth Cup semi-finals this season.

Promising playmaker Ismail Azzaoui was not involved because he is with the Belgian under-17 side at present at the European Championships.
