Mauricio Pochettino praises Tottenham Hotspur youngsters Harry Winks, Josh Onomah, Grant Ward and Kyle Walker-Peters

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino was impressed by four youngsters during his side's 2-1 win over a Malaysian XI yesterday.

Mauricio Pochettino has told ESPN that Tottenham Hotspur's youngsters put on a 'fantastic show' during the side's friendly against a Malaysian XI yesterday.

Spurs are currently on a commercial pre-season tour and they have utilised the opportunity to test out some of their fringe players in the first-team.

The likes of Harry Winks, Josh Onomah, Grant Ward and Kyle Walker-Peters all played a part against the Malaysian side and helped Spurs claim a 2-1 victory. 

"It was a good opportunity for them to show their skill and for me to watch the younger players," Pochettino said. "It's never easy [in Malaysian conditions] and they put on a fantastic show."

Both of Tottenham's goals in the match were scored by Harry Kane, but it is likely to that Pochettino was happier with the academy stars.

The Argentine boss knows all about Kane's goalscoring ability, but he will have seen the quality that some of his brighter prospects posses during the fixture.

Pochettino is determined to utilise Tottenham's academy system and the future does look very bright.

With Ryan Mason, Nabil Bentaleb and Kane already in the first-team, it seems that more academy graduates could be set to join them and Tottenham's youngsters will all be aiming to impress over pre-season to prove they are ready to play for the senior side.
