Fresh from winning the IMG Cup in Florida, Spurs will participate in the Frenz International Cup in Malaysia in early January.
Once again, the team will play against a variety of sides of different nationalities, and it should prove to be a useful experience.
We are in Group D, and our schedule is as follows
Sunday 4th Jan, 21:00 (13:00 UK time) vs Frenz United FC (Malaysia)
Tuesday 6th Jan, 16:30 (08:30 UK time) vs AIFF India (India)
Thursday 6th Jan, 16:30 (08:30 UK time) vs Estudiante FC (Argentina)
All matches will be streamed via the official tournament site.
I am trying to find out the exact squad list, but Musa Yahaya’s agent, Babawo Mohammed, has confirmed that he has returned to Nigeria in order to obtain a visa for the competition:
“Musa is back in Nigeria to get a visa to travel with Spurs for an U19 tournament in Malaysia. He could not get such a visa in London because he is a minor and that was why he returned to Nigeria.” (via AfricanFootball.com).
Cameron Carter-Vickers misses out as he is on international duty. Joe Pritchard and Charlie Hayford miss out through injury. Under-16 players Japhet Tanganga and Kaziah Sterling are included in the squad although Lloyd Ross misses out having been born in 1996 (the tournament is for players born in or after 1997).
