Friendly round up

Sheffield United inflicted a 2-1 defeat on Premiership side Tottenham Hotspur, with the Championship outfit taking advantage of defensive errors to pick up victory.
The Blades are shaping up well for the coming season, and an opening day trip to Burnley, and manager Neil Warnock will be delighted by a victory.
Robbie Keane had opened the scoring, when he latched onto a Simon Davies through ball and smashed a dipping volley past Irish compatriot Paddy Kenny in the United goal.
It took Warnock's side just two minutes to level, when former Chelsea man Jon Harley produced a trademark shot from the edge of the box that left Kasey Keller a spectator.
The winner came on 67 when Jonathan Forte benefited from confusion in the Spurs defence to latch onto a long clearance from his goalkeeper and knock past Keller.
Leeds United recovered from a two-goal deficit against Spanish champions Valencia to earn a 2-2 draw.
Two goals in two minutes had put Leeds on the back foot at the break - with Mohamed Sissoko wrapping up a lightning break with a fine finish and Francisco Rufete latching onto a careless back-pass to double the visitors' advantage.
Youngster Simon Walton had an eventful afternoon scoring Leeds' first from the penalty spot after Julian Joachim was felled.
But after a quickly taken Matthew Spring free kick had levelled the score, Walton received his marching orders for his second booking after a melee involving several players from both sides.
