Ghana midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng got a consolation for his German side Schalke in their 2-1 pre-season friendly defeat to his former club Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

Dennis Aogo found room on the left-hand side and his delivery was swept home in the box by Boateng with 10 minutes remaining.

Adebayor’s 29th-minute goal and a 66th-minute effort from much-maligned strike partner Roberto Soldado ensured new Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino enjoyed a winning debut at White Hart Lane following his pre-season move from Southampton.

Boateng and his Royal Blues teammates will now prepare for next Monday’s DFB Cup first round tie against Dynamo Dresden.
