AVB delighted with US victory

by Matthew Harris on August 1, 2012

Spurs finished their tour of the United States with a 2-1 victory over New York Red Bulls that left head coach Andre Villas-Boas expressing his delight at the team performance. The row over Charlie Adam’s tackle on Gareth Bale had masked a largely subdued set of games but AVB was pleased with the final win.

“It was good and that’s mainly because of the response in the second half,” said AVB.

“We were a bit spread out on the pitch in the first half and they were playing in-between us.”

Spurs went behind in the eighth minute but two goals either side of the hour mark from Gareth Bale and Gylfi Sigurdsson secured the win.

“We came back very strong and managed to get the win that everyone deserved,” AVB added.

“When you go into the dressing room 1-0 down and you are able to turn it around, showing strong character, that is always positive, because of the players’ mentality and determination to get the result. That’s a good sign.”

The first XI squad now return home and will face Watford at Vicarage Road this coming Sunday.

Just saw some of the highlights. Their goal came from us playing a high line which a lot of spurs fans are very concerned about. Cahill got in behind and won a penalty (which should have been a red card as well). Keane was doing the same against us for LA.
Sig’s goal was class mind and looked like we dominated the 2nd half. Quality header from Bale and even Hudd looked lean!
