Tottenham lose Volksbank Cup final to Club America

Tottenham have lost the Volksbank Cup final in a penalty shootout with Club America.

With the match finishing 0-0, it was left to the lottery of spot-kicks to decide the fixture and it was the excellent Alex Pritchard who was unfortunate enough to miss the decisive kick, allowing the Mexican side to win the shootout 4-3.

"It was an awful way to end it but there are lots of positives to take from the tournament," coach Alex Inglethorpe told tottenhamhotspur.com after the final.

"I thought we were outstanding against Werder Bremen. It was a very complete performance. We controlled the game, with and without the ball, and I thought we were standout in how we approached the game.

"The result in the final is hard to take because I think we were the better team. Club America were good but they backed right off us; we had all the ball, all the initiative and a couple of chances but we couldn't score."
