Luke McGee and Erik Lamela send message to Spurs fans after Milan win

Tottenham beat AC Milan 2-0 in the Audi Cup, with Luke McGee making his first start fr the club.


Pre-season trophies may be meaningless, but first team games are not necessarily so trivial when you are a young player making your debut.

That is especially the case for Luke McGee, Tottenham's teenage goalkeeper who was handed his first ever start for the club against illustrious opponents AC Milan.

To make the occasion even more special, Tottenham not only won, but McGee kept a clean sheet - despite facing a talented front three of Carlos Bacca, Luiz Adriano, and Keisuke Honda.

He sent a message via his Twitter page, describing the game as an 'amazing experience', and it will surely stand him in good stead going forward, now installed as the club's third choice goalkeeper behind Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm.

Erik Lamela was another Spurs player to send a message via Twitter after the game, expressing his excitement at the season ahead, an indication he sees his future at the club.


Lamela is a player who splits opinion, in part due to high expectations as the club's record signing, tied to his inconsistent performances.

He started both games in the Audi Cup, making it uncertain whether he will start against Manchester United in the Premier League at the weekend.
