When I think of Fredi Kanoute at Spurs....
I think of this!
I love this goal- it is a true belter! And the commentary is entertaining too!!
Last night Kanoute's Sevilla side beat his old club in a controversial UEFA Cup quater-final first leg in Spain. I was really looking forward to this match - which is something I rarely say when it comes to UEFA Cup matches! - as I anticipated an attractive encounter between two teams constructed with a big attacking mentality. The always-excellent Robbie Keane than scored after 68 seconds to underline what I felt about these match being able to guarantee goals, only for a terrible refereeing decision handed Kanoute an opportunity to equalise from the penalty spot- which he did with consumate cool.
It was an outrageous decision by the Luxembourg referee - really he could have no excuses because it was clear that Robinson dived and palmed away the ball with good timing before colliding into Adriano.
Sevilla scored a second before half-time and the score remained this way at full time to leave the tie nicely poised for the second leg next Thursday. It will be the biggest European night at White Hart Lane for some years and I expect Spurs in their current form to be able to score. What's more questionable is whether they can stop Sevilla from scoring an away goal or two.
