We brung it, but the Spurs are a championship team and theyre on a hot streak right now, Faried said. Theyve been winning games.

With nothing tangible at stake, the Raptors turned in their most impressive outing of the fall in their seventh and second to last exhibition tilt against their stiffest competition yet, but they lost a couple starters in the process.Arsene Wenger has refused to be drawn on reports he was offered the England managers job. Press speculation on Friday claimed the Arsenal boss was the Football Associations first choice to replace Roy Hodgson following a disappointing Euro 2016 campaign.But Sam Allardyce was installed on two-year deal later in the day and Wenger has pledged his full backing to the former Sunderland manager. Speaking to the assembled media after Arsenals 1-1 friendly draw with Lens, the Frenchman said: I wouldnt like to talk about the talks the FA had. He has my full support... no matter who manages England would have my full support. It is my second country and I was at every game (during the Euros). Arsene Wenger on Sam Allardyce I always say I respect my contracts and that is what I do. Look, you now want to be behind the guy who is now in charge. You dont want to talk to me about the England managers job as that would be unfair.And Wenger, who has one year remaining on his contract at the Emirates, insists the new boss of his second country can count on his full support. Sam Allardyce hopes to make supporters proud of the England team Sam has wanted the job for a long time and was in contention for it when Steve McClaren got it, he added. Denzelle Good Jersey. He has big experience and I wish him well.He has the capacity to get the best out of his teams. They are always difficult to beat as they are always well organised. He has my full support... no matter who manages England would have my full support. It is my second country and I was at every game (during the Euros). And Wenger, who now takes his side to the United States for two friendlies over the next week, believes Allardyces experience over a number of years in the game will prove invaluable for England.It is always an honour to manage a country and I have said in the past many times that it is more comfortable for a guy from the country to manage the national team as he represents the character of the country.England had a young team at the European Championship and in two years, if they stay together, they have a better chance (World Cup). They needed that experience to help them get a better position in Russia.Watch MLS All-Stars v Arsenal live on Sky Sports 2 HD from 00.50am on Friday.
