Good morning in the Americas, good afternoon in Europe, and good whatever the hell it is right now in Australia. This is the first live match thread of the season here at Cartilage Free Captain, kicking off with Tottenham Hotspur's preseason match in the Vodacom Challenge against Kaizer Chiefs of South Africa. If you're new around these parts, these threads are a hell of a lot of fun and get hundreds of comments on big match days during the regular season. 

Here's our lineup for the match.

Tottenham Hotspur lineup: Cudicini; Hutton, Bassong, Dawson, Assou-Ekotto; Bentley, Jenas, Huddlestone, Kranjcar; Keane, Defoe

Subs: Friedel, Corluka, Kaboul, Khumalo, Naughton, Bale, Lennon, van der Vaart, Crouch, Pavlyuchenko

I'm surprised that Pienaar isn't there. I haven't heard anything about him being injured, so I hope he's just being rested because he's starting the next game. Also, don't read too much into Luka Modric not being in the team, as he's picked up a slight ankle injury.

The match starts at 2 pm BST, 3 pm local, and 9 am ET. You can find the match on Spurs TV all over the world and on ESPN UK. As for those living outside the UK and without Spurs TV...you know the drill. COYS!
