Gallery: Tottenham's 2-1 loss to MLS All-Stars - Alli, Trippier, Wimmer, Alderweireld all feature

Spurs put in a decent performance for the most part, but failed to get the right result, despite another impressive Harry Kane goal.

Tottenham Hotspur slipped to a 2-1 loss to MLS All-Stars on Wednesday night, with famous figures in US football Kaka and David Villa helping the Londoners' opponents into a 2-0 lead before Harry Kane smashed a cracking reply.

Though the result may dishearten Spurs fans, it was really a case of domination for Mauricio Pochettino's side, who found veteran US international Nick Rimando in fine form in the first half, as he saved four or five times from White Hart Lane star Kane before the England international's fierce long range strike.

The second half saw Tottenham have even more possession, despite sweeping changes to both teams, and several youngsters caught the eye as the club ended with a team that could almost pass for an Under-21 outfit.

What Spurs were perhaps guilty of was the same defensive frailties they showed under Pochettino last season, as they gifted easy openings in search of an equaliser.

Over the course of the match, Toby Alderweireld, Kevin Wimmer, Kieran Trippier and Dele Alli all made the first public appearances in Spurs colours, and for the most part, the new boys impressed.
