Tottenham Hotspur youngster Anton Walkes has taken to Twitter after making his debut in Tuesday's International Champions Cup defeat to Juventus.

Versatile Walkes, who can play in both defence and midfield, replaced right-back Kieran Trippier 63 minutes into the 2-1 reverse at Melbourne Cricket Ground.

The 19-year-old was one of seven Spurs youngsters to make their bows over the course of the 90 minutes, along with starters Will Miller, Dominic Ball and Cameron Carter-Vickers and fellow substitutes Luke Amos, Marcus Edwards and Shayon Harrison.

"Amazing experience making my first appearance against Juventus," Walkes wrote on the social media website.


Mauricio Pochettino's youthful side got off to a terrible start Down Under, falling two goals behind inside the first 15 minutes courtesy of strikes from Paulo Dybala and Medhi Benatia.

However, it was Juventus who were left hanging on in the end, after sub Erik Lamela halved the arrears with 23 minutes remaining.

Afterwards, the Argentine joined Walkes on Twitter, posting: "What a day in Australia, amazing fans".


Fellow half-time introductions DeAndre Yedlin and Josh Onomah issued similar messages, with both pleased to get 45 minutes under their belts, while Amos, Carter-Vickers and Harrison each posted images on their Instagram pages.
