LA Galaxy 1 – Tottenham 1 (Pre-season friendly, July 24, 2012) Gareth Bale headed Andre Villas-Boas’ Spurs side ahead on 17 with a flying header from a left wing cross. LA pulled level with Spurs as David Lopez pulled a goal back against Spurs. Just before the break Robbie Keane missed a great double chance against his former club. In the second half, Spurs missed a couple of decent chances as first Jermain Defoe pulled a shot wide when clear. And on 64, Gareth Bale went on a trademark run down the left but his cut back was horribly screwed by Gylfi Sigurdsson. Injuries to Rafael van der Vaart and Kyle Walker somewhat soured the pre-season match for Tottenham.
