SEATTLE (AFP) - Spanish winger Yago Falque netted the equaliser on a penalty kick in the 82nd minute to give Tottenham Hotspur a 3-3 draw with Seattle Sounders on Saturday.

The international football friendly marked the debut of Argentina's Mauricio Pochettino as manager of the Spurs after leaving Southampton in May.

But it took two second-half penalty kicks to keep the English Premier League side level with their Major League Soccer rivals.

Seconds after entering the match, Seattle's Tristan Bowen put the Sounders ahead 3-2.
