I thought if I get a chance to shoot, I’ll shoot and thankfully it went in.Spurs midfielder Erik Lamela scored the only goal of the first half, striking from close range in the 31st minute after Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon palmed a shot from teenage striker Troy Parrott into his path.In a more lively second half, Juventus substitute Gonzalo Higuain equalized in the 56th minute after some neat interplay on the edge of the box gave him the space to place it low into the right corner.Then up stepped crowd-favourite Ronaldo.Defender Mattia De Sciglio cut the ball back to the Portuguese who drilled it across the keeper in his last touch before he was replaced.But Juventus’ lead did not last long. In the 65th minute, Moura got on the end of a pinpoint pass from Tanguy Ndombele, the French midfielder who joined Spurs for a club-record fee earlier this month.advertisementIn the closing stages, Higuain had a decent chance to break the deadlock. But it was Kane’s wonder-goal – which came after Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot lost the ball – which sealed the win in the dying seconds.It was a great goal. Unbelievable from Harry. It is good for him to set off pre-season with scoring, said Spurs coach Mauricio Pochettino.The International Champions Cup features 12 teams playing friendly matches in venues in North America, Europe and Asia.Also See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

The Duke of Sussex will make a “significant and poignant” journey to Angola to pay homage to the anti-landmine work of his mother Diana, Princess of Wales during a major tour of Africa, Buckingham Palace said.Harry will also pay tribute to a British soldier killed by an elephant during anti-poaching operations in Malawi when he visits the country to highlight efforts to protect endangered animals.The Sussexes will be taking son Archie on his first official overseas trip and although he has not been included in their schedule, it is understood the couple hope to publicly introduce him to Africa at some point.At a Buckingham Palace press briefing about the tour, Sam Cohen, the duke’s private secretary, said: “In a particularly significant and poignant journey, the Duke of Sussex will have the opportunity to return to Angola to see first-hand the legacy of his mother the late Diana, Princess of Wales, whose visit to Huambo in 1997 helped raise awareness of the threat posed by landmines to communities and livelihoods.”The work of the late princess, and commitment to this issue, changed global opinion.”Now, more than two decades later, humanitarian de-mining work continues and the Angolan government has made a significant financial commitment to clearing landmines from another large area important for conservation of Angola’s unique ecosystem.” Diana, Princess of Wales, walks with body armour and a visor on the minefields during a visit to Angola on January 30, 1997Credit:Anwar Hussein/WireImage Diana famously walked through a cleared minefield in Angola in 1997 to highlight the plight of those maimed by military munitions. The princess never saw her work to help outlaw landmines come to fruition as she died before the international treaty to ban the military weapons was signed later that year, a few months after she was killed in a Paris car crash.The duke and duchess will visit Africa from September 23 to October 2, and while Meghan and Archie spend the duration in South Africa, Harry will leave his family to tour Angola, Malawi and Botswana before being reunited with them in Johannesburg.
