Tottenham development coach Clive Allen was pleased with their friendly defeat to San Jose Earthquakes yesterday.
"It was a quality game for us," Allen told the Spurs website. "San Jose are five weeks into their pre-season programme now and having seen them at West Ham on Monday, I knew it would be a very competitive match for us and that's how it turned out.
"It was just what a number of our players needed. Result-aside, no-one likes to lose, it was a very good game for us."
