Roger Ibanez header gives Roma victory over Tottenham

Roger Ibanez

As Jose Mourinho achieved victory over his former club in Israel, Tottenham’s preseason for the new Premier League season came to an end with a close 1-0 loss to Roma thanks to a Roger Ibanez’s header.

In the 29th minute at the Haifa International Stadium, Roger Ibanez headed in a corner from Paulo Dybala, who had just completed a free transfer from Juventus earlier in the week. This was the Argentine’s debut for the Serie A club.

Conte will be encouraged by the performances of his new additions despite the fact that they failed to record a shot on goal. Clement Lenglet and Richarlison showed flashes of promise after the break, and the Brazilian’s brilliant moment of invention late in the game almost resulted in a shooting opportunity.

Being a serial winner like Mourinho, Conte would be frustrated by the fact that the most of the players who started against Roma are set to do the same next weekend.
