Harry Kane scored Tottenham’s only goal

Spurs ended their South Korean pre-season tour with a 1-1 draw against Spanish side Sevilla in Suwon.

Harry Kane fired home five minutes into the second half after excellent footwork saw Son Heung-min beat his man at the edge of the 18-yard box before setting up for Kane who was coming in the opposite direction.

Kane had seen a goal ruled out for offside in the first half of the game.

But Tottenham walked away with a draw after Sevilla midfielder Ivan Rakitic scored with a powerful strike from outside the box.

“This week in Korea I’m very happy because we worked a lot and at the same time we enjoyed and played two friendlies,” Spurs coach Antonio Conte said.

“I think the first game was friendly and this one was a real game.”

Spurs will return to England with some injury concerns after Ben Davies was taken off in the 85th minute.

Conte added: “He finished the game with a bit of ankle pain. Hopefully nothing serious.”

Conte said he hoped to give new signing Ivan Perisic “20 to 30 minutes” in this game.

Perisic is yet to feature for Tottenham after picking up a leg injury in his last game at Inter Milan.
