INCIDENTS: Preseason friendly between Tottenham Hotspur and Inter Milan, held at the Ullevaal Stadion in Oslo

Tottenham Hotspur ended their preseason in impressive fashion by defeating Inter Milan 6-1 in Oslo.

Harry Kane playing his first game for Spurs' since the Euros, opened the scoring five minutes in by scoring from the penalty spot. Inter though levelled things up midway through the first half through an Ivan Perisic goal, before a brilliant solo goal from Erik Lamela restored Spurs' lead just before half-time.

The second half was a one-sided contest as the Lillywhites scored five unanswered goals to win in style. The goals in the second half came from Dele Alli, Kane, Vincent Janssen and Shayon Harrison as Spurs' eased to victory.

Kane scores an early penalty to give Spur's the perfect start

Spurs' started on the front foot and they took an early lead from the penalty spot. The penalty was awarded by the referee after Cristian Ansaldi brought down Kyle Walker in the box. Kane playing his first pre-season game stood up to take it and he calmly slotted the ball home to give his side the perfect start.

It should have been two for Spurs' not long after when a lovely passing move ended with a lovely through pass from Christian Eriksen into the path of Ryan Mason, who was in on goal but somehow he put his shot wide of the goal.

Perisic levelled things up in Oslo

Inter started to gain some control of the game after that chance and they got an equaliser midway through the half thanks to a wonderful strike from Perisic. The goal was made by a lovely through pass from Ever Banega who found Perisic who then powered a left-footed finish past Michel Vorm.

Lamela's wonder goal gives Spurs a half-time lead

After the goal, Inter had some more half chances but couldn't get a second goal. They were then punished five minutes before half-time when Lamela scored a wonderful goal. The winger found himself 30 yards out and unleashed a lovely curling effort which flew into the top left-hand corner.

Inter were unable to hit back before half-time with Spurs' holding their own against a very good side and deserving to be in front after a positive half.

Unstoppable Spurs' score four unanswered goals in the second half

The start to the second half was very scrappy until a moment of magic of Alli saw Spurs score their third goal. The goal came from a brilliant one-two between Alli and Janssen which saw the midfielder curl the ball into the net past Samir Handanović.

Spurs' almost went further ahead when a brilliant cross from Kieran Trippier found Kane but the striker saw his header come back off the post and then Lamela put the follow-up over the bar.

The fourth goal did come though as Kane got his second of the game. Spurs' counter attacked Inter and Kane got the ball inside the box and smashed the ball into the net to show that he is fit and ready for the new season.

The Lillywhites continued on and were ruthless as they scored a fifth not long after when new signing Janssen scored his first goal for the club. The goal was made once again by the superb Alli even though he was fouled he still managed to get the ball through to the Dutchman who then made no mistake by stroking the ball home.

It got even worse for Inter as Spurs' got their sixth goal of the game as youngster Harrison rounded off a wonderful move. Janssen started the move off by taking the ball of the Inter defender and he played a lovely ball through to Lamela who in turn played a great ball across the box and Harrison tapped the ball home.

Fortunately for Inter, Spurs' couldn't manage to find a seventh goal. Inter themselves never got going in the second half while Spurs's were superb throughout.

The win leaves Mauricio Pochettino's men in a good state of mind ahead of their Premier League opener against Everton next weekend.
