By Harry Sykes
Tottenham have named five players with no first-team experience in a full-strength squad for their friendly against Hong Kong.
Goalkeeper Pau Lopez, central midfield duo Luke Amos and Filip Lesniak, attacking midfielder Will Miller and striker Kaziah Sterling join the first-team regulars in a 22-man squad for the post-season friendly.
The rookie quintet, who are yet to play for the senior team, join the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris for the one-match trip.

There has been no attempt from manager Mauricio Pochettino to rest any of his senior stars or select a weakened squad.
Even Kyle Walker, who has been strongly linked with a summer exit from White Hart Lane, has been named in the squad despite missing the last two matches of the season with an ankle injury.
