Tottenham Hotspur fans have given their assessment of Lucas Moura after he featured against Inter Milan in the International Champions Cup.
Spurs lost their final pre-season fixture to the Nerazzurri on penalties after a 1-1 draw after 90 minutes.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side took the lead through Lucas Moura in the third minute, with Stefano Sensi equalising for the Italian giants.
In the shootout Christian Eriksen and Oliver Skipp missed their penalties to allow Inter to win the game.
Despite the loss, Spurs look ready to return to Premier League action next weekend in terms of fitness, but fans will hope to see a couple more new faces through the door before Thursday’s transfer deadline.
One man who stood out for Tottenham against Inter was goalscorer Moura, who is really laying down a claim to be in Pochettino’s first starting lineup against Aston Villa.
The Brazilian was lively throughout and has been so throughout pre-season.
His goal was superbly taken and suggested the player is full of confidence.
Arguably he has been playing like a man with a point to prove after being snubbed for a start in the Champions League final.
Tottenham fans react
Spurs fans were delighted with another brilliant Moura showing, with many believing he could be in for a super 2019/20:
Should’ve started in the CL final….. no debate! #COYS

Moura is going to be key this season if his preseason is anything to go by.

Still can’t get over Pochettino’s decision not to start this man in the final. That was the worst decision he’s ever made in football. Scores a hat trick in the semi-final and benches him for the final. 😧😧
