English Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur were held to a scoreless draw by Omar Jasseh's San Jose Earthquakes in the opening match of their pre-season tour of the United States on Saturday.

Both teams created opportunities with Robbie Keane having a goal disallowed for offside, but were not able to break the deadlock,

After an action-packed first half, the second period was a slower affair. Niko Kranjcar, Luka Modric, and Roman Pavlyuchenko came on for Spurs, while the Earthquakes made six changes, with Joe Cannon, Arturo Alvarez, Ryan Johnson, Scott Sealy, Javier Robles, and Gambian international Omar Jasseh entering the battle, according to goal.com

Just minutes later, the Earthquakes threatened on the other side, with MLS star Omar Jasseh beating Kyle Walker at the first time, only for Spurs defender to make an excellent recovering challenge.

Omar Jasseh was lively on the left flank and flashed a dangerous ball across the box, but no one was there to connect. Shortly after Gareth Bale went down after a hard collision, had managed to stay on for the remainder of the game.

Omar Jasseh fondly called Waterman, picked up the first and only yellow card of the match on 83rd minute for a reckless challenge on Luka Modric.

San Jose are currently sitting on 9th and 20 points in the MLS standing.
