Bournemouth 0 – Tottenham 3 (Friendly, July 17, 2009) Spurs had a difficult start as David Bentley was withdrawn after a bad tackle in the 15th minute. Redknapp’s side made the breakthrough in the 27th minute when Jake Livermore fed Robbie Keane who slotted home with ease. A much-changed side began the second half positively with Jermain Defoe scoring against his former club in the 55th minute and Wilson Palacios wrapped up the scoring 11 minutes later.
UCLA 2 – Inter Milan 2 (Friendly, July 17, 2009) Against the odds UCLA took the lead on 39 minutes from their first corner of the contest, when Carasco headed a goal past the Inter keeper Belec, a lead which they held into the break. Jose Mourinho then opted to make some changes introducing Ibrahimovic, Diego Milito and Cristian Chivu, and the moves paid dividends as Marco Materazzi tapped in a goal from close range at the start of the second half. Inter then stole into the lead as a cross into the area from Mancini was met by the head of Dejan Stankovic. But the Americans refused to lie down, and just a few minutes later Griffin restored parity for UCLA as his header was too strong for Orlandoni in goal.

Biglia soon had the Belgians on a level-footing while Fabio met a Zequinha cross to complete the win for Olhanense.
Flamurtari 1 – Motherwell 0 (Europa League qualifiers, July 16, 2009) Well fell to an embarrassing Europa League defeat to Albanian outfit Flamurtari after John Sutton controversially had a penalty disallowed.
