Tottenham Hotspur loanee Yago Falque gave a glimpse of his potential to Harry Redknapp last night.

The 21-year-old Juventus starlet was playing his first match for the club, as part of a Spurs XI against Kettering Town in Jean-Paul Marna's testimonial, and bagged a brace to instantly show his potential to the manager.

Alongside another debutant, Cristian Ceballos, the pair scored four of the team's five goals, and it was a performances that Tottenham Hotspur Technical Co-Ordinator Tim Sherwood described as a 'massive positive'.

"Yago and Cristian are not just 'nice' footballers, they affect football matches and that's what it's all about," said 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 moved to Juventus from Barcelona in 2008, but is yet to force his way into senior reckoning at the Serie 'A' side and was shipped out to White Hart Lane in August. The move was heralded as a coup by Spurs boss Redknapp

The attacking midfielder is tipped to make an impact for Tottenham Hotspur in the Europa League competition this term, but could force his way into Barclays Premier League contention were this impressive display to be followed-up.
