Tottenham were held to a 1-1 draw in a pre-season friendly by a Los Angeles Galaxy side featuring former striker Robbie Keane.

Gareth Bale gave Spurs a first half lead in California before the home side levelled before the break.

Bale converted a 17th minute cross from summer signing Gylfi Sigurdsson but David Lopes replied before the break to make sure the match ended 1-1.

David Beckham was absent from the Galaxy line-up after being selected to feature for the MLS All Stars against Chelsea on Wednesday evening.

Spurs suffered a couple of injury scares during the match, as Rafael van der Vaart and Kyle Walker limped off with knocks. England right-back Walker has only recently returned to the side from a long-term toe injury.
