Comfortable Europa Win For Spurs

Tottenham beat Tromsø 3-0 tonight in the UEFA Europa League, thanks to a first-half brace from Jermaine Defoe and a late goal from Christian Eriksen.

Spurs had an early chance when in the 3rd minute Danny Rose's shot went straight at Marcus Sahlman at the near post, after Rose had made a good run down the left and cut back into the area.

In the 14 minute Gylfi Sigurdsson tried a shot from outside of the box, but it went wide to the right, and five minutes later he had a better chance but this time it was saved by Sahlman.

Defoe gave Tottenham the lead just after the 20 minute mark, as he ran onto a Erik Lamela pass and smartly chipped the ball over Sahlman to score.

Younes Kaboul could have doubled the lead in the 25th minute but he missed from a few metres out.

Defoe made it 2-0 in the 29th minute, running onto a Lewis Holtby through ball and scoring in the bottom right corner.

Sigurdsson came close to adding the third in the 42nd minute but his shot went just wide, and at half-time Tottenham were convincingly leading against a Tromsø side who had hardly threatened.

The second-half continued in a similar vein, and in the 55th minute Holtby saw his long range effort go wide of the goal.

Tromsø had their best chance of the game in the 64th minute but Josh Pritchard's effort missed by far.

Spurs came close again in the 83rd minute but Paulinho's cross from just inside the box flashed across the goal and couldn't find a teammate.

Substitute Christian Eriksen wrapped up the tie in the 87th minute with a great long range goal to make it 3-0.
