Tottenham Hotspur beat Juventus 3-2 in the International Champions Cup on Sunday, and there has been plenty for fans to get excited about.

Young duo Troy Parrott and Japhet Tanganga impressed having been handed starts by Mauricio Pochettino, and Tanguy Ndombele enjoyed a promising debut.

Harry Kane's last-gasp winner from the halfway line was quite remarkable, and coming from 2-1 down to beat the Italian giants was another boost.

 

Another small factor in the game was Moussa Sissoko unceremoniously taking out Juve midfielder Adrien Rabiot, but it didn't go unnoticed with Spurs fans.

Rabiot isn't exactly an enemy at Tottenham, but he's far from popular either. ESPN claimed that Rabiot felt a move to Spurs was 'below him' as he decided to wind down his Paris Saint-Germain contract.

The midfielder joined Juventus this summer, and Sissoko took great joy in taking him out, posting photos of the incident on Instagram whilst telling his compatriot there were no hard feelings.

Spurs fans loved the post and the tackle itself though, joking that Sissoko knew Rabiot's view of Tottenham and decided to teach him a little lesson.

Some called the post 'excellent' whilst admitting they love Sissoko, and in a bizarre twist of fate, few Spurs fans would take Rabiot over Sissoko after differing trajectories over the last year.
