Confirmed line-ups: Tottenham Hotspur vs MLS All-Stars

Here is how Spurs and MLS All-Stars will line up in their glamour friendly in Colorado, where Eric Dier will play in midfield for the Londoners.

Tottenham Hotspur starting XI: Vorm; Walker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen (c), Davies; Bentaleb, Dier; Chadli, Dembele, Eriksen; Kane

Tottenham substitutes: McGee (GK), Glover (GK), Trippier, Yedlin, Fazio, Wimmer, Rose, Alli, Carroll, Onomah, Winks, Coulthirst.

MLS All-Stars starting XI: Rimando; Beltran, Gonzalez, Besler, Beasley; Zusi, McCarty, Kaka (c), Zardes; Dempsey, Villa

Tottenham take on the very best the MLS has to offer in one of the North London club's most prestigious friendlies in recent years.

The MLS franchise have only been offering All-Star matches against foreign opposition for little over 10 years, and a quick look at their opponents for the last few fixtures, Manchester United, Chelsea, Roma and Bayern Munich, highlights that the fixture is not only becoming a bigger deal, but also emphasises that the sport is growing massively in the US.

Indeed, the All-Stars side beat Bayern Munich last summer, so Mauricio Pochettino will have surely drilled into his players that this will be a tough, competitive game against quality individuals.

Spurs will be playing their first pre-season friendly of the summer open to the public, with the club's other matches being behind closed doors at Hotspur Way. And what an audience for Tottenham's many promising young players to be playing in front of, with fans curious to see how the Argentine utilises the likes of young English stars Dele Alli and Eric Dier, US international DeAndre Yedlin, and homegrown talents Harry Winks, Josh Onomah and Shaq Coulthirst.

With the likes of Kaka and David Villa on display, as well as former Spurs man Clint Dempsey, the All-Stars side have plenty of household names of their own that the Tottenham players will be familiar with. Also, coupled with the fact that those playing in North America are midway through their season, and should have a fitness level that reflects that, and it is easy to see why this is such an intriguing fixture.
