The English club won the friendly tournament for the first time and is the second Premier League team to do so

After many matches played not only in the United States but also worldwide, the International Champions Cup is now over.

English club Tottenham Hotspur has been crowned champion of the first worldwide edition.

The ICC is a friendly tournament where the best teams in the world battle for pre-season glory.

Spurs are the second Premier League club to win the tournament, with Manchester United having done so in the 2014 North America and Europe competition.

Tottenham destroyed Roma 4-1 in their first match in San Diego, California.

This match was key to the Premier League club winning the tournament thanks to the goal difference.

Then the team went to tie 2-2 against Barcelona in Pasadena in regular time.

But the match went to penalty kicks and the Catalan side won 5-3.

And to close the friendly tournament, the Spurs were able to beat AC Milan 1-0 in Minneapolis.
