Georges-Kevin N'Koudou blasted home a stunning victor for Tottenham Hotspur against AC Milan in the International Champions Cup - but not all Spurs fans were impressed.

Pochettino being impressed is just the first step for Skipp, and the decline of Marcus Edwards since he starred on pre-season in 2016 is a warning sign that he must not take too much for granted.
