Eidur's quick off the mark!

Eidur Gudjohnsen took less than a minute to open his Spurs account in a training ground friendly against Dagenham & Redbridge at Spurs Lodge on Tuesday.

The forward marked his first appearance just days after arriving from Monaca with two goals in a 4-1 win against the Daggers. Jon Obika also scored twice.

Eidur was joined in the side by fellow new recruit Younes Kaboul and both played 90 minutes in a friendly that ticked all the boxes for Development Coach Clive Allen.

"Eidur must have scored with his first touch," reported Clive. "Jon Obika closed the goalkeeper down, blocked his clearance and the ball spun out to Eidur and he finished from about 12 yards.

"Jon scored two excellent goals after that. His first was a left-foot shot into the top corner from the edge of the box and his second a finish at the far post after a break from Andros Townsend.

"Dagenham scored just before half-time to make it 3-1 and Eidur scored his second and our fourth with a near-post header from Jon Bostock's corner midway through the second half.

"It was ideal for Eidur as he's worked hard with the fitness coaches over the weekend but he needed a game from a match fitness point of view and just to get to know everyone. It was a real benefit for him."
