Three Spurs score, Nabil Bentaleb becomes Andrea Pirlo in closed doors friendly

New, comments

On Saturday, Tottenham Hotspur kicked off their preseason campaign with a 3-0 victory over Nottingam Forest in a behind-closed-doors friendly. Below are highlights of all three goals. However, it wouldn't be the guys who put the ball in the net who had the highlight of the match.

Heung-Min Son got the scoring started by stealing the ball from a defender, running in on goal and finishing past the Forest goalkeeper. A pretty simple goal, but effective and clinical nonetheless. Future Balon d'Or winner, Tom Carroll, notched the second Spurs goal with a side-footed finish off a centered ball from the right flank. Lionel Messi would be proud.

Undoubtedly the pick of the bunch has to be the third and final goal by Alex Pritchard, thanks to an Andrea Pirlo-esque assist by Nabil Bentaleb. The Algerian curled an absolutely perfect ball with the outside of his left peg to the oncoming Pritchard for a great goal. You won't see many better passes than that, I don't care what the situation or competition level is.
