ICC 2018: Llorente, Moura help Tottenham beat Roma

Fernando Llorente and Lucas Moura scored twice in the first half as Tottenham accounted for Roma 4-1 in their International Champions Cup opener.
Roma, who reached the Champions League semi-finals last season, made the perfect start as Czech forward Schick found the far corner of the net inside three minutes for his fifth goal in three pre-season fixtures.
But Spurs hit back six minutes later when Spanish veteran Llorente latched onto a deflected Luke Amos cross to head in the equaliser.
The former Juventus, Bilbao and Swansea forward then gave Tottenham the lead when he followed up from Moura’s saved shot at the back post.
Former Paris Saint-Germain winger Moura was becoming an influential figure Spurs, and having provided the assist for Llorente’s second goal, the Brazilian added a third when he headed home Serge Aurier’s pin-point cross.
Moura scored Tottenham’s fourth goal on the stroke of half-time after he collected the ball on the edge of the area and drilled accurately into the bottom corner.
