10:16 - Hi Guys and welcome to VAVEL's live coverage of this International Champons Cup match between Tottenham Hotspur and Atletico Madrid

The two manager's today, Pochettino and Simeone, were both linked to the vacant Argentina job at the start of the week. However, each Argentinian boss has ruled themselves out, most likely due to having unfinished business at their current clubs, and wanting to take to the international stage a little later into their career's, both being relatively young bosses at present. 

There is likely to be more talent entering through the door at Tottenham in the coming weeks, with manager Pochettino saying as much in his pre-match press conference ahead of today's match.  "I expect some signings in the next few weeks, we will see what happens but I expect some activity."

Although Torres was most likely speaking of the more obvious young talents, such as Dele Alli and Harry Kane, there were a few even younger players that impressed in the second half against Juventus, namely attacking midfielder Marcus Edwards. He'll be hoping for another runout today, although it's likely to be in another substitute role.

Fernando Torres is likely to start for Atleti, and has said some rather complimentary things about his opposition today, in the past week. He tipped Spurs for the Premier League title in the coming season, saying; “Pochettino is doing a great job mixing these talented young players they have with more experienced players. They’re doing things really well. Last season they were really close to winning the Premier League and they are on their way, but in the future they will do it.”

Spurs did play three friendlies before jetting out to Australia, all behind closed doors at their training ground, winning two and losing one. Due to this, the public have only got to see them once so far, a game that Christian Eriksen didn't get to feature in due to a virus. There were doubts over his availability for this game, but it now looks like he may well play 45 minutes. The Spurs contingent that represented England at Euro 2016 won't feature, having not flown out to take part in the tour of Australia. Atletico have played just the one friendly to date, beating Numancia 2-0 last Saturday, back in Spain. Diego Simeone has a fairly full squad to pick from, bar Antoine Griezmann (post Euro 2016 holiday) and Koke (injury). 

This is Atleti's first game in the tournament this year having flown out a few days ago, but it's Spurs' second. They played Juventus on Tuesday, at the same venue as today's game is being played, but were on the end of a 2-1 defeat. Mauricio Pochettino fielded a youthful side, especially in defence, and the Lilywhites were caught cold, conceding twice in the first 15 minutes. Some half-time substitutions helped swing the pendulum back in Tottenham's favour a little, as Erik Lamela pulled one back. However, they couldn't find an equaliser, so come into this one looking to pick up their first points of the competition. 

Good morning everyone, and welcome to VAVEL UK's live minute-by-minute commentary of Tottenham Hotspur - Atletico Madrid in the International Champions Cup, Australia. Kick-off at the Melbourne Cricket Ground is set for 11AM, and hopefully we'll have an exciting match to take you through today, with two of Europe's best sides coming up against eachother in pre-season.
