Little time has been wasted in touting Guillermo Ochoa's name around after last night's stunning show for Mexico.
Stoke live updates
Long-serving Stoke defender Andy Wilkinson has agreed a one-year contract extension, the club have announced.
The deal, which also includes the option of a further 12 months, will take the 29-year-old into a 14th season with the Potters.
Stoke and Newcastle have two players each in WhoScored's latest Premier League team of the week, which is rather unusual.
Stoke City manager Mark Hughes will turn his attention to securing the future of on-loan winger Oussama Assaidi, with talks having already begun with his parent club Liverpool.
Assaidi starred in Stoke's 4-1 win over Fulham on Saturday.
– Mark Hughes
It's important that we accept that he's not our player, he's Liverpool's player, but he's done really well for us and we're very pleased with what he's produced.
There is a hope we might be able to bring him in and a lot of that is down to the player himself. You need the right players around you to maximise your ability and I think he's found that at Stoke City, so we're hopeful.
But it's out of our hands to a certain extent because it depends what Liverpool value him at.
SCFC XI v @SpursOfficial 4-4-1-1: Begovic; Cameron, Wilson, Shawcross, Muniesa; Arnautovic, Whelan, Nzonzi, Odemwingie; Ireland; Crouch

Stoke sought assurance from Spurs that everyone will shake the hand of Charlie Adam should he make the starting line-up for Saturday's Premier League clash.
A rumour surfaced on Friday suggesting some of the visiting side would snub Adam because of ill feeling towards the playmaker.
The Scot has been the instigator of a number of controversial tackles in games against Tottenham and Paulinho was out for a month after being felled by Adam in the reverse fixture in December.
– Stoke manager Mark Hughes
We've made contact with Spurs to see if there's any truth in it and they assure us there's absolutely nothing. So we'll take it with a pinch of salt.
We were a little bit taken aback by it. When I read it I thought it was absolute bunkum. We made the call and it just confirmed what we felt anyway.
Charlie's done really well this year and he's in my thoughts for the game tomorrow certainly. He came on against Cardiff to good effect.
