ERIKSEN and KANE DOWNS JUVENTUS

Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen helped Tottenham to a 2-0 prevail upon Juventus yet Mauricio Pochettino will have waiting worries after Kieran Trippier limped off at Wembley. 

The England global went down under a handle from Alex Sandro and was pulled back before the break, conceivably leaving a sizeable gap at ideal back after the offer of Kyle Walker to Manchester City. 

Regardless of the misfortune, Spurs will take a lot of positives from securing a third pre-season triumph in a match they to a great extent controlled. 

Juve, in the mean time, delivered incidental looks while never demonstrating the quality that made them Champions League finalists last term. 

Just a great second-half spare from Gianluigi Buffon kept a heavier edge of triumph after Kane and Eriksen scored either side of half-time with a couple of well-taken objectives. 

Trippier first got consideration in the wake of getting his leg got in the turf inside the opening five minutes, despite the fact that the 26-year-old soon came back to dynamite impact. 

Covering on the right, he got Moussa Sissoko's pass and conveyed a delightful dinked cross for Kane to gesture in at the back post. 

Juve settled and Paulo Dybala innocuously guided his side's initially endeavor over the bar, before Gonzalo Higuain drew a sharp spare from Hugo Lloris at short proximity. 

Kane at that point squandered an unmistakable possibility for a moment when Buffon's substantial touch made frenzy in any case, after Eriksen transformed the ball once more into the territory, the England striker sidefooted his complete directly at the veteran guardian with the objective expanding. 

Sissoko went significantly nearer soon a while later when he was managed time to examine a shot inside the region, just to see his twisting exertion return off the post. 

Goads' great half finished on a harsh note with Trippier capitulating to his prior thump and being constrained from the pitch. 

The Premier League side started the second time frame in far brighter design as Dele Alli slipped Eriksen in behind to make it 2-0 in the 52nd moment, the Dane adjusting Buffon and applying a basic wrap up. 

It would have been three had Buffon's fingertips not pushed a Kane drive against the crossbar while Lloris was called upon to tip a Dybala exertion around the post. 

Massimiliano Allegri rolled out a few improvements from half-time onwards, presenting any semblance of Federico Bernardeschi and Claudio Marchisio, however it was youthful striker Moise Kean who turned their most obvious opportunity with regards to the match against the woodwork from point-clear range. 

The two sides now anticipate their first focused matches seven days on Sunday as Juve meet Lazio in the Supercoppa Italiana while Spurs go to Newcastle United for their Premier League .
