Tottenham Hotspur won the 2019 Audi Cup courtesy of a penalty-shootout win over Bayern Munich on Wednesday night.
The two teams could not be separated over the 90 minutes, with a 2-2 draw meaning that penalties were required to decide the contest.
It was Spurs that triumphed 6-5 following a high-quality shootout, with Jerome Boateng’s miss for Bayern proving crucial.
The victory might well have come at a huge cost in terms of a defensive injury, though, with Juan Foyth having to leave the field in the latter stages.
After the match, Mauricio Pochettino revealed that the 21-year-old had picked up an ankle problem.
It remains to be seen whether the injury is a grade one sprain or one which could potentially keep him on the sidelines for an extended period.
A number of Tottenham fans have been on social media offering their views on the injury blow and a selection of their reaction is available to view below:
Wishing Juan Foyth a speedy recovery. That’s come at a truly awful time in his Spurs career with the right-back spot his for the taking. Hopefully he’ll be back soon ? #COYS

Really hope Foyth’s injury is not too serious.

Awful for him but never going to make a rb

Got to feel for the lad. Coming back early to try and get the place in the team.

Wishing Juan Foyth a speedy recovery which looks to be an achilles injury.
Obviously I expect a new RB signing, but the worrying thing is you actually never know with Levy.

Gutted for Juan Foyth terrible luck thought we would do well at right back

Looks like Foyth twisted his ankle. If its ligament then its 6 weeks out easy.
