Andros Townsend has made his first appearance for Spurs since the injury that saw him miss this summer’s World Cup.
The 23-year old England international played the first half in their opening pre-season game this summer in the USA against Seattle Sounders, where they drew 3-3.
Townsend suffered an ankle injury against Stoke City towards the end of the season, which cruelly ruled him out of the Three Lions' World Cup squad in Brazil, which he had fought so hard for a place in.
The right-winger is only just returning to action now after a smooth recovery and a bout of punditry for ITV on the World Cup, but will hope to emulate his stellar form last season.
This peaked around the New Year and saw him scare many defences. He made 33 appearances, scoring two goals and creating others, which earned him a call-up to the England side, playing an integral part of their qualification to the World Cup.
Find his form
If this form continues, he can expect to get his place in the national side back for their qualification campaign for the upcoming Euros in 2016. England definitely need something extra to kick start them again as the World Cup has finished and they came home in the group stages with one point.
It was a good start for Townsend and Spurs though, with new manager Mauricio Pochettino stating ‘the players did their best'.
"I’m happy as it was the first game of the tour, the conditions were difficult with warm temperatures and all the players did their best," said the manager, according to The FA.
Time to improve
"This is the time to improve and learn and I'm very pleased with all the players."
Tottenham Hotspur will continue their tour in Canada as their next game is against Toronto FC, where they face former player Jermain Defoe. Spurs will want to gear up properly for this new season and get off to a flier with their opening Premier League game against West Ham.
