Now that Tottenham have completed their Premier League campaign, Spurs are off and running on their post-season friendly schedule.
The most recent match on the list for Mauricio Pochettino’s side was a game against Sydney FC at ANZ Stadium.
70,000 people showed up to the stadium to watch Tottenham take on Sydney, and they were rewarded for making the trip as Harry Kane netted yet another goal in the 43rd minute.
Kane’s strike ended up being the deciding blow in this match as Tottenham emerged victorious by a score of 1-0.
For Kane, it was simply business as usual. After taking the Premier League by storm this season, the Englishman has become accustomed to scoring goals on a regular basis.
While these post-season friendlies are important in terms of developing younger players and giving them a chance to see the pitch, the main goal of these exhibitions is to continue to build a reputation and further the fan base around the world.
Spurs have done exactly that in the past week or two. The club has not only handled their work on the pitch, but have also gone above and beyond in their effort to grow the game while abroad.
They have provided clinics for kids, worked with disabled players, and the players have all been available for media sessions and press calls.
While it would be easy for the club to take it easy after a long and strenuous Premier League endeavour, Spurs have refused to take the easy route and I would venture to guess they have gained a few more fans in the process.
