Keane off the mark

Posted on 7 October 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 was delighted to open his goal account for Spurs, but insists the short wait was never an issue for him.

It took just six minutes of our encounter with Blackburn at Ewood Park to banish any fears of a long-term drought when Keane unleashed a spectacular precision effort that fizzed past Rovers' keeper Brad Friedel to set us on our way to a second away win of the season.

Naturally, it was a special moment for the Irish livewire.

"It was," grinned Robbie. "I said before that I think people were panicking a little bit. I'm not one of these people that hides from these things and worry about it.

"I knew it would come eventually and hopefully I will now get many more.

"I just went through and the first thing in my mind was just to shoot. Luckily enough for me it went in - a few games ago it probably would have hit the bar and come back out.

"It was my day today but, the most important thing, first and foremost, was that we got the result and the three points. In the first half we were the much better side and in the second half they were.

"It was to be expected because they were at home with the crowd behind them, so we are very happy with the points."

Robbie had three notable chances during the course of the game and was within inches of securing a more comfortable looking scoreline right at the end.

"I think I scored the hardest one. The last one just crept past the post when I thought it was in. The second one I had was just a reaction, it just came to me and I had a shot that hit the keeper's legs."
