A full match report on the game is now available. We'll be watching Spurs next Saturday night too, when they meet Espanyol.
And that's it. The final score is Monaco 5 Tottenham 2, and Falcao has done a lot of the damage with two goals for the hosts. It'll be hard to find any real plus points for Spurs, but it's more fitness and good experience for the younger players.
Carrasco has been very good for Monaco. The Belgium Under-21 winger bursts clear in the final act of the match.
Excellent play and a finish to match from Townsend - the substitute cuts in from the right and fires a low left-footed shot from 20 yards which finds the corner. That'll cheer his manager.
The attendance has been announced - 12,221 in the Stade Louis II apparently. Must have been quite a few late arrivals!
Huddlestone pings a low shot from range and it almost catches out Subasic - but the ball does bounce wide of the post.
Sigurdsson is penalised for handball as the pass from Townsend rides up his body, but replays show that was an unfair call by the referee.
Instead of trying for his hat-trick, Falcao sets up Moutinho inside the area but the Portugal midfielder couldn't avoid a heavy touch, and Lloris claims.
A deadly breakaway from Monaco - Carrasco plays a delightful through-ball for Obbadi to run onto and he slots the hosts' fifth goal home.
It was always a big ask for Spurs' young defence to handle a talent like Falcao over the course of 90 minutes. 20 minutes to go, and AVB will be hoping it doesn't get much worse. Or the Colombian gets subbed.
Ocampos whips in a low cross from the right flank, the ball bounces and sits up nicely for Falcao to strike first time and it's too powerful for Lloris to keep out.
Good goalkeeping from Lloris, a firm punch over the head of Falcao as the striker was looking to connect with a cross from the left.
Isimat-Mirin makes an error that allows Kane to equalise. He won the ball off Dembele and thought he was clear of any danger but only managed to play the ball straight into Kane's path, and the young striker tucks it home.
Rose has arguably been Tottenham's best player and here he strides into midfield, wins the ball and sends a powerful shot towards goal - but it's always rising.
Chadli's trying to get Spurs moving again in midfield, but that quickfire double from Monaco has really knocked the stuffing out of Spurs. They'll do well to avoid a hiding here, you feel.
A cross from the right by Ocampos and Falcao is there in the centre to meet the ball and score past Lloris. Awful start to the half for Spurs. Kane had a chance just before Falcao's goal too.
Moutinho's free-kick is met by substitute Ocampos with a glancing header which he sends past Lloris. So simple for the hosts.
Reminder of the Spurs team: Lloris; Walker, Fryers, Livermore, Rose; Dembele, Parker; Lennon, Chadli, Sigurdsson; Kane.
Three changes for Monaco for the second half - Fabinho, Lucas Ocampos and Nicolas Isimat-Mirin are coming ON. Goalscorer Raggi, James Rodriguez and Ricardo Carvalho come OFF.
Watching back on the replays again, and credit to Danny Rose for forcing the offside on the disallowed Monaco goal. Falcao initially looked level, but slo-mo shows he was just off.
And that's it for the first half. Monaco lead Tottenham 1-0 through Andrea Raggi's 15th-minute strike. Jermain Defoe's injury will be a cause for concern for Andre Villas-Boas. Let me know your thoughts - email firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet me on @jonboy79.
Carrasco wanted a free-kick for a foul by Walker. Eventually, Monaco get one elsewhere on the pitch as Rose is penalised. Almost half-time...
A free-kick to Spurs, about 25 yards out - it's blasted goalwards by Walker, and is deflected off the defender. That caused Subasic to bundle it around the post for a corner.
After a Spurs corner had caused Monaco some problems, Sigurdsson wastes the pressure with a speculative effort that's off target.
A shot from Spurs! We haven't seen many. Substitute Harry Kane with some good control and takes aim from 20 yards, but he doesn't catch it right and the ball bounces wide of the post.
Kurzawa slices wide with a left-footed shot from inside the area. That was another good chance for the hosts.
Falcao's too strong for Parker, and wins the ball in the centre circle after the Tottenham man makes a frustrated foul.
Lennon gets round the back of the Monaco defence but his final ball is cleared. Then Walker makes an aggressive tackle, one he's lucky to get away with.
Moutinho's trickery - a nutmeg on Livermore - creates space and he plays the pass for Falcao, but Walker is alert and Lloris too, with the keeper claiming the ball.
Midway through the first period, Spurs are seeing plenty of the ball but only in their own half of the pitch. More penetration needed.
Lloris was probably the least likely to make a mistake in the Spurs rearguard today, but he really should have saved that effort from Raggi. The Spurs defence will have to stand strong here.
Goal disallowed - a late offside flag led to some confusion. Falcao was sent through, and although Lloris saved the initial effort, the rebound was put away. It doesn't stand, however.
What a hit, but what a mistake from Lloris. After a free-kick for a foul by Walker, the ball was moved from left to right by James Rodriguez and right-back Raggi hit a good volley which bounced and then went in at the near post.
Subasic makes a hash of Walker's right-wing cross as Chadli lurks, and Ricardo Carvalho is needed to clear the danger.
On Twitter, @alansimon01 has got in touch to ask about Younes Kaboul. He's not involved again tonight and with reports indicating that his long-term fitness is in question, it's unclear when we'll next see the centre-back in action.
An early change for Spurs, and a worrying one - Harry Kane comes ON, as Jermain Defoe walks OFF. Defoe must have felt a tweak in a muscle.
A decent move by Spurs breaks down. Parker sprays the ball right for Chadli, but Monaco close down the space and retrieve possession.
Mistake by Walker as Carrasco is able to steal the ball and play it down the left wing for Falcao, but the Spurs right-back recovers and wins the foot race.
The Italian right-back Raggi gets away down the flank and pulls a ball back looking for Falcao. Livermore intercepts and then Obbadi fires over.
The searing heat is going to play a part in proceedings this evening, it seems. AVB would have preferred to have brought a stronger team to face Monaco.
An update on some the Spurs absentees today. Dawson and Vertonghen are still injured. Paulinho isn't ready, and Adebayor has stayed at home "for personal reasons", according to the club.
Not many in at the Stade Louis II - that's usually the case here however, with the average attendance around 5,800 last season in an 18,000-capacity ground.
Spurs will be playing in their new all-blue away kit. Monaco in their traditional home strip - red and white halved shirts.
It seems Nacer Chadli will be playing more centrally today, but it was thought he'd been recruited to add more width to Spurs' play. Co Adriaanse, who worked with Chadli at Twente, has called the Belgian a "complete player": "He's creative, strong, fast, has a great free kick and he turns excellently."
Spurs will have one more friendly after this game - that's against Espanyol at White Hart Lane next Saturday evening. Then it'll be the Premier League opener against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Sunday 18 August, a lunchtime kick-off.
So we're expecting both teams to line up 4-2-3-1. It'll be interesting to see how that inexperienced centre-back partnership of Jake Livermore and Zeki Fryers get on against Falcao! Fryers didn't impress me in the Asia Trophy match against Sunderland. What are your thoughts? Let me know.
Monaco's bench today looks like this: Fabio Tavares, Lucas Ocampos, Nicolas Isimat-Mirin, Delvin N'Dinga, Marcel Tisserand
France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has received a hearty round of applause from the Stade Louis II crowd during his warm-up.
Here's the team that Monaco coach Claudio Ranieri has named for the game: Danijel Subasic; Andrea Raggi, Ricardo Carvalho, Eric Abidal (c), Layvin Kurzawa; Jeremy Toulalan, Mounir Obbadi; James Rodriguez, Joao Moutinho, Yannick Carrasco; Radamel Falcao.
Off the pitch, the Spurs business revolves around striker Roberto Soldado (who should be signed up soon), Clint Dempsey (who should be a Seattle Sounders player soon) and Gareth Bale (who's edging closer to joining Real Madrid).
So that's new signing Nacer Chadli making his first appearance in a Tottenham shirt in the south of France tonight. Among several youngsters involved in the matchday squad is 18-year-old central midfielder Nabil Bentaleb, who's on the bench.
And the Spurs substitutes are: Friedel, Naughton, Stewart, Bentaleb, Carroll, Huddlestone, Townsend, Kane.
Here's Tottenham's starting line-up for the game... Lloris; Walker, Fryers, Livermore, Rose; Dembele, Parker; Lennon, Chadli, Sigurdsson; Defoe.
