Spanish giants Atletico Madrid edged past English side Tottenham Hotspur with a 1-0 scoreline in the International Champions Cup.
Uruguayan defender Diego Godin’s 40th minute strike proved to be the difference between the two sides when Atletico Madrid took on Tottenham Hotspur. However, it wasn’t all doom and gloom for Spurs, as their new signings Vincent Janssen and Victor Wanyama put in a good performance, while youngsters Anton Walkes and Harry Winks also impressed.
Michel Vorm: 5
Had very little to do all game, and was helpless for goal he conceded.
Kieran Trippier: 6
Failed to offer much going forward but was tidy in possession. Could be a good option for manager Pochettino.
Anton Walkes: 7
Relatively unknown at the start of the game, the youngster ended the contest as one of the better performers. Looked confident in defending and was strong on the ball.
Cameron Carter-Vickers: 6.5
Unlike his last game, the young defender came out strong this time round.
DeAndre Yedlin: 5
Was played out of position as a left-back. Did not look comfortable.
Harry Winks: 7
Another youngster who performed well on the day. The Spurs fans are likely to see a lot from the defensive midfielder this season.
Victor Wanyama: 7
Impressed again at the heart of midfield. Was tidy in possession and an imposing presence on the ball.
Erik Lamela: 7.5
The Argentine winger seems to be having a decent pre-season run and is expected to be a regular once the season begins.
Christian Eriksen: 4.5
Looked far from himself in the game. The Danish midfielder needs to buck up before the season begins.
Josh Onomah: 4.5
Struggled to get into the game. May be better off spending a season or two out on loan
Vincent Janssen: 7
A much improved display from the new signing. Came close to scoring with a free-kick in the second half.
Jak Oblak: 7.5
Made a couple of telling saves and did well to maintain a clean sheet.
Sime Vrsaljko: 6
Provided a bit of threat going forward, but was often caught out of position while defending.
Diego Godín: 8
Had a decent outing at the heart of defence. Also grabbed the game’s only goal, making it a perfect game for the Spaniard.
Stefan Savic: 6
Much like his centre-back partner, the 25-year-old had a good game.
Filipe Luis: 4.5
Not a good game for the Spanish full-back, and was often bullied down the left. His performances have been far from impressive this pre-season.
Was tidy with the ball in midfield, but was bullied by Wanyama at times.
Thomas Partey: 5
The Ghanaian midfielder looked off the pace, and put in a mediocre performance for the Spanish Giants
Misplaced a number of passes, and scuffed his only attempt of the game.
Saúl Niguez: 8
Touted as one of the next big things in Spanish football, Niguez put in another fine showing.
Héctor Hernandez: 5
Provided very little assistance to Torres upfront, and may not play an active role in the upcoming season.
Fernando Torres: 6.5
Did not score, but looked sharp and had a few close calls. Good display overall.
