Roma with­stands Spurs’ fight­back

Muscat Daily - - SPORTS -

Roma with­stood a dra­matic, late Tot­ten­ham come­back to send the English Pre­mier League team to its first de­feat of this pre-sea­son in a bad tem­pered af­fair which ended 3-2 in re­mark­able fash­ion in Har­ri­son, US, on Tues­day. Diego Perotti put the Ital­ian team ahead with a penalty on 12 min­utes. On 69 min­utes, Euse­bio Di Francesco's side dou­bled their lead as Cen­giz Un­der­scored. But Harry Winks re­duced the ar­rears on 86 min­utes, and when Vin­cent Janssen scored in stop­page time, the Spurs looked to have gained a draw. Mo­ments later, how­ever, Marco Tum­minello scored to sink the Lon­don­ers once and for all.
