Benni's goal wish

Posted on 28 August 2012  - 13:01

Benoit Assou-Ekotto is hoping history repeats itself after scoring in our first home game of the campaign against West Brom on Saturday.

Benni's goal wish

The last time the full-back struck in our first home game was his memorable first goal for Spurs in August, 2009 – a goal that inspired us to victory that day against Liverpool.

Fans will know exactly how the 2009-10 panned out, as Benoit explained. “The last time I scored in the first game of the season, we qualified for the Champions League at the end of the season.

“I just hope it’s a good omen. Hopefully, at the end of the season, we will do that again.”

Unfortunately, Saturday’s effort wasn’t enough for the three points as West Brom forced home an equaliser in the 91st minute.

“It’s hard to concede a goal like that at the end,” added fans favourite ‘Benni’. “But we have to think positively and look to the next game.”
