The Spurs XI came out on top as they beat their visitors 4-2, with Khumalo playing the full 90 minutes.

Four of the six goals came in the opening 20 minutes, with Khumalo’s team mate Cameron Lancaster getting the opening two goals and Ryan Mason netting the third and fourth goal for Spurs.

The friendly would have been a good introduction of the English football style for the 23-year-old South African international and being on the winning end will undoubtedly give his confidence a boost.

The Spurs XI lined-up as follows: Ranieri, Waller-Lassen (Fredericks, 46), Khumalo, Nicholson, Francis-Angol, Parrett, Mason, Carroll, Luongo (Durojaiye, 70),  Lancaster (Pritchard, 70) and Dawkins.

      This was the Tottenham reserve team...he has to get used to the pace of English football so I'm glad they started him off like this. I may start supporting Tottenham now if Bongz and Pienaar become first team regulars :)
