Fredi's best

Posted on 6 October 2003  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Fredi Kanoute was in little doubt that his wonder strike against Everton was the best of his career.

He wasn't sure when he was asked the same question after his overhead kick against Leeds back in August.

But this was an easier decision. The packed house at the Lane was left gasping as the French star crashed a dipping volley into the top corner from fully 30 yards, crucially opening the scoring just before half-time in what had been a tight encounter up to then.

"I think yes, this one has to be the best," smiled a typically modest Fredi afterwards. "I'm delighted with it.

"It was a goal I wasn't expecting and it was just before half-time, so it was a good time. I headed it first, Gus headed it back, I saw it bounce and hit it how I could. It was a special goal."

Fredi added that the most important thing was his effort kick-started a spell of three goals in six minutes either side of half-time with Gus Poyet and Robbie Keane securing a worthy 3-0 victory.

He said: "I was delighted because it was just before half-time and we played great football afterwards.

"It was a very good performance and I'm sure we will now show what we are capable of."
