Cristiano Ronaldo and Juventus stunned by Harry Kane's wonder goal as Tottenham triumph in Singapore

England striker's stoppage-time shot from close to the half-way line gives Premier League side 3-2 win

Harry Kane spoiled Maurizio Sarri's first game on the touchline as Juventus manager with a last-gasp wonder strike to win their International Champions Cup match 3-2 on Sunday.

The England captain hit a shot from close to the half-way line that flew into the net to give Spurs the victory in the pre-season friendly clash in Singapore.

The ball had run loose and Kane, spotting that former Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny was off his line, unleashed a shot that flew over the Pole to clinch an unlikely success for the Uefa Champions League runners-up.

Erik Lamela's goal had given Tottenham a first-half lead after finishing from close range, and that was a fair reflection of affairs as Maurico Pochettino's side impressed.

But two goals in four minutes early in the second half from Gonzalo Higuain and Cristiano Ronaldo put the Serie A champions ahead as Sarri, who took over at Juve after leaving Chelsea in June, got his first look at his players.

But Lucas Moura struck in the 64th minute to level things and it looked as if it would be honours even until Kane's late strike.

Juventus are next in action on Wednesday when they face Inter Milan in Nanjing, China.

Tottenham also head to China as they face Manchester United in Shanghai on Thursday.
