New Tottenham Hotspur signing Gylfi Sigurdsson marked his first appearance for the club with a goal.

 

The Iceland international, recently signed from Bundesliga side Hoffenheim, was a second half substitute in Spurs’ pre-season friendly win over Stevenage.

 

New White Hart Lane boss Andre Villas-Boas watched on as Sigurdsson drilled in a low shot across goal shortly after being introduced.

 

The 22-year-old former Juventus midfielder Iago Falque doubled the lead just before the final whistle to complete a satisfying night for the north London side.

 

Fans travelling to the League One side’s Lamex Stadium would have been glad to see Villas-Boas had selected a strong starting line-up, including Kyle Walker, Michael Dawson, Younes Kaboul, David Bentley and Steven Pienaar.

 

The second half saw the introduction of another new addition, Belgian defender Jan Vertonghen, who put in an assured display.

 

Amid all the excitement surrounding the debutants, England Under-19 international Harry Kane stood out, showing glimpses of real quality that suggested he is destined for a bright future.

 

Spurs will now embark on their pre-season tour of America and their next meeting will be up against David Beckham’s LA Galaxy on Tuesday July 24.
