    • 85' Bassong looks to have won a corner but a goal kick is given to New York.
    • 84' Palsson draws a foul from Townsend.

    • 83' Spurs subs: Bassong, Smith and Kaboul for Assou-Ekotto, Lennon and Sigurdsson.
    • 81' Great run and cross by Townsend and is comes quickly to Kane but he’s caught by surprise and loops his shot into Gaudette’s arms.
    • 80' Red Bulls 1-2 Tottenham Hotspur: Miller concedes another corner to Spurs.
    • 79' Still Spurs with all the possession as a smiling Tim Cahill watches on from the bench. Lennon closed down by Palsson.
    • 77' A definite lull to the game in the last five minutes even with fresh legs on. Goal kick to New York.
    • 76' Poor ball from Townsend and it’s out for a Red Bulls throw.
    • 75' Red Bulls 1-2 Tottenham Hotspur: 15 minutes plus injury time remaining on an entertaining evening in New York.
    • 73' Spurs sub: Bale off for Townsend.
    • 71' Miller plays in Lade but his cross is too hard for Cooper and Solle. Lade has played well tonight though.
    • 70' Red Bulls 1-2 Tottenham Hotspur: It’s certainly been an entertaining evening and don’t bet against more goals in the last 20 minutes.
    • 69' Great defending from Miller to deny a flying Bale from getting past him and into the box.
    • 68' NY have looked disjointed since the break. They need Cahill and Henry!
    • 67' Finally some breathing space for the hosts as McCarty is fouled.
    • 66' Close to 3-1! It comes off Dawson’s shin and off the bar from the corner.
    • 65' Red Bulls 1-2 Tottenham Hotspur: The goal was definitely coming and they have been on top practically since going behind. They have another corner.
    • 64' NY sub: Lindpere off for Borrajo.
    • 63' GOAL Spurs! And that’s a cracking shot into the top corner from Gylfi Sigurdsson. World class goal. He turned Holgersson inside out before ripping it past Gaudette and into the corner.
    • 62' Pinball in the box but the home side hack clear. Spurs definitely on top now.
    • 61' Spurs sub: Livermore off for Tom Carroll. Corner to Spurs.
    • 60' Red Bulls 1-1 Tottenham Hotspur: Walker off for Spurs as NY attack down the right.
    • 59' GOAL Spurs! Great ball in by Sigurdsson and Bale rose to head into the far corner. Nothing Gaudette could do about that!
    • 58' Great run from Kane who wins a corner for Spurs.
    • 57' Red Bulls organised in defence to break up another Spurs attack.
    • 55' Red Bulls 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur: Spurs continue to press with New York sitting deep. Gaudette could be in for a busy half.
    • 54' Spurs could well be ahead but for the excellence of the Red Bulls keeper.
    • 53' What a save from Gaudette to deny Lennon! Bale’s cross found the winger and his shot looked destined for the net but the NY keeper touched it over brilliantly.
    • 52' Ekotto whips in a cross but Holgersson cuts it out.
    • 51' Great run by sub Jan Gunnar Solle but Spurs intercept his cross.
    • 50' Red Bulls 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur: Good start to the half by New York minus Cahill.
    • 49' Le Toux tackled by Gallas. Throw to New York.
    • 48' Kane is also on for Spurs, Huddlestone also off as is Cahill for New York.
    • 47' Vertonghen is the man to make was for Gallas. Bale flashes a ball across the face of goal.
    • 46' Spurs subs: Jenas and Gallas on
    • We’re back underway here at the Red Bull Arena. Expect some substitutions from both sides.
    • HALF TIME: Red Bulls 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur
    • 45' There will be one added minute.
    • 44' Bale looks like he was tripped by Conde but the ref waves play on.
    • 43' Again Spurs give away possession cheaply and Cooper storms forward before Spurs win it back.
    • 42' Poor pass by Huddlestone gives away possession. Tainio looks for Le Toux but he is just offside.
    • 41' Bentley looks for Bale with a cheeky chip but Gaudette claims well.
    • 40' Vertonghen was Dutch footballer of the year for Ajax but so far it is his clumsy challenge that has led to Spurs falling behind.
    • 39' Assou-Ekotto fouled by Lade and wins a free kick.
    • 38' Assou-Ekotto with space on the left but he is quickly closed down and his cross is blocked.
    • 37' Huddlestone and Bale have gone closest for Spurs so far. Sigurdsson has had a quiet half.
    • 36' Great run from Miller but Dawson is there to clear his cross and Gomes has it.
    • 35' Thierry Henry was a big part of Cahill joining New York. Unfortunately the Frenchman is unfit to play a part tonight.
    • 43' Flag up again. This time Lindpere offside.
    • 33' Red Bulls 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur: Still the hosts lead from Cooper’s penalty after Vertonghen brought down Cahill.
    • 31' Flag up. Cooper caught offside.
    • 30' Poor pass from Livermore and it’s out for a NY goal kick.
    • 29' Nasty looking challenge from Assou-Ekotto on Cahill. Really should have been a yellow.
    • 28' Cooper makes a run but it's safe in the hands of Gomes. Friedel unlikely to come on tonight.
    • 27' Red Bulls 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur: Spurs still marginally on top since going behind.
    • 26' Red Bulls on the attack but Le Toux has his shot blocked.
    • 24' Cooper on a run down the left flank for NY but Spurs defend the danger.
    • 23' Red Bulls 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur: Bale crosses and it eventually reaches Walker who fires wide.
    • 21' A bit of a siege by Spurs at the moment.
    • 20' Walker floats it across and it’s great defending by New York to stop Bale stealing in.
    • 18' Red Bulls 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur: It has been all Spurs since the early New York goal.
    • 16' Huddlestone runs forward and lets fly. Another good save from Gaudette. Bale flashes his header wide from the corner.
    • 15' Red Bulls 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur: Walker collides with Cooper and the Red Bulls pass the ball back to Gaudette.
    • 14' NY clear the danger. Been a good spell for Spurs this.
    • 13' Another corner as Bentley’s shot is blocked.
    • 12' Red Bulls 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur: Great start to this match!
    • 11' Bale takes and Gaudette tips over. Great free kick, great save!
    • 10' Hand ball Conde. Free kick in a dangerous area.
    • 10' So a great start for Cahill but not so for new Spurs signing Vertonghen. It was a clumsy challenge.
    • 9' Bale stretches his legs down the left and gets his cross in but nobody is there.
    • 8' Dax Marquez controlling things for New York.
    • 7' GOAL NY! Cooper sends Gomes the wrong way and slots away the penalty. What a start by Cahill and the Red Bulls!
    • 6' Penalty NY!! Cahill bursts into the box and Vertonghen brings him down!
    • 6' Lennon looks for Sigurdsson in the box but NY win it back.
    • 5' Marquez tries to get things going but Spurs break it up.
    • 3' Conde can’t keep it in. Goal kick Spurs.
    • 2' Cahill has his first touches of the ball and feeds Cooper down the right flank. Bright start from New York.
    • 1' Sigurdsson tackled by former Spurs player Tainio and NY have the ball.
    • NY Red Bulls 0-0 Tottenham Hotspur: We’re underway here at the Red Bull Arena. New York in their white strip with red shorts and Tottenham in their change strip of dark blue. Or is it purple? Thierry Henry is being rested, which is a shame.
    • 23.55 Tottenham Hotspur: Gomes; Walker, Dawson, Vertonghen, Assou-Ekotto; Huddlestone, Livermore; Bentley, Sigurdsson, Lennon; Bale.
    • 23.50 NY Red Bulls: Gaudette, Conde, Holgersson (c), Miller, Marquez, Tainio, McCarty, Cahill, Lindpere, Le Toux, Cooper.
    • 23.45 Villas-Boas: "Needless to say, we are extremely relieved Gareth has not been seriously injured. There is previous history between the two players on the challenge that was done I think three years ago. Will we take it any further? We are discussing it within the club but in my opinion, the matter is dealt.”
    • 23.40 Gareth Bale is doubtful after picking up a knock against Liverpool courtesy of a bad looking Charlie Adam tackle that has enraged Villas-Boas but Thierry Henry is expected to start for New York.
    • 23.35 Spurs began their US tour with a 1-1 draw against David Beckham’s LA Galaxy, Gareth Bale opening the scoring before a fairly drab 0-0 draw against Liverpool in Baltimore.
    • 23.30 Hello and welcome to our live commentary of New York Red Bulls v Tottenham Hostpur in New York’s Red Bull Arena as new manager Andre Villas-Boas looks to end the three game tour of the US on a high. Kick off 00.00 BST.
