Glenn hails 'magnificent' spirit

Posted on 12 January 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).

Glenn Hoddle acclaimed the 'magnificent' team spirit of the side after Robbie Keane inspired us to a thrilling win against Everton on Sunday.

The Irish star produced a master class in front of goal to claim his first Premiership hat-trick and finally secure a 4-3 success against a determined Everton outfit that initially took the lead and came back from 2-1 and 3-2 down in the second half.

It was a vital three points as we attempt to qualify for Europe via the Premiership and a much-needed lift after our FA Cup exit at Southampton last weekend and the fall out that has followed in the media this week.

"It was hard work but we're absolutely delighted to take the three points," reflected Glenn afterwards.

"We had to churn it out in the end. We'll analyse the defending because we've given goals away and that's something professionally that hurts you. But we showed magnificent character.

"People outside the camp, who don't understand, have had their week knocking us about team spirit after it was misinterpreted from what Steffen Freund said last week.

"The team spirit out there was magnificent and if you do have a problem with team spirit, you don't win games like that. I think we've shut people up on that front.

"The most valuable thing for us this week was three points and I was very pleased with the manner we did it in the second half - great character, great play and what a magnificent hat-trick from Robbie Keane."
