Keane for the challenge

Posted on 17 December 2002  - 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).

Robbie Keane is well aware the manager will be demanding a similar level of performance to that displayed against Arsenal in the forthcoming games.

Glenn himself said after the game that the team have set a standard now and the challenge is to meet that in as many games as possible - starting with Manchester City at Maine Road next week.

"It was a great team performance and we worked very hard for each other - hopefully next Monday we can do the same," said the livewire striker.

"It will be tough to follow that but I'm sure we can."

Robbie was unfortunate not to find himself on the scoresheet again as a goalline clearance from Ashley Cole and a good save from David Seaman denied him a slice a derby glory.

"That's the way it goes and it's one of those things. It was a good game to be involved in.

"We should have won the game - we were the better side on the day. It's how it is in football, but I thought we put on a good show for the fans."

Robbie added that he is getting used to the London derby culture, but is happy there is a gap before the trip to Manchester.

"I am now," he grimaced, pointing to his ankle. "It'll be nice to get a break as I got a couple of knocks on my ankle. I should be alright, but I'm glad the next game is a bit away.

"The lads are a bit disappointed as we were the better side, there is no question about that. We have to be happy with ourselves but it would have been nice to have got the three points."
