Spanish duo impress for Spurs

Published Add your comment

Spanish duo Yago Falque and Cristian Ceballos both grabbed braces on their Tottenham debuts which will, no doubt, be music to the ears of the White Hart Lane faithful after a somewhat disappointing transfer window.

Despite constant speculation that Spurs were chasing a number of high-profile targets, the transfer window yielded only Brad Friedel, Emmanuel Adebayor and Scott Parker, in terms of first-team signings.

Spurs did, however, bring a handful of exciting young players to the club during the summer, with Falque and Ceballos joined by the acquisition of Souleymane Coulibaly.

The latter recently netted twice for the reserves against Inter Milan in the NextGen Tournament, while Falque and Ceballos were handed their first appearances as a Spurs XI took on Kettering on Wednesday.

The Lilywhites triumphed 5-4 at Nine Park, with Falque and Ceballos both taking the plaudits for their respective doubles.


"Yago and Cristian are not just 'nice' footballers, they affect football matches and that's what it's all about," said Tottenham technical co-ordinator Tim Sherwood.

"They showed real quality and that’s what we’ve seen from them in training.

"They are technically excellent players and scoring two goals each in their first match in England, we can’t ask for more than that."

Falque joined on loan from Juventus before deadline day, while former Barcelona starlet Ceballos signed in July after a successful trial.
