Keane to hit back

Posted on 8 November 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 refuses to dwell on 'one of those nights' at Burnley - insisting he'll do his utmost to hit back at Sunderland on Sunday.

The Irish star hardly needs reminding that he had three one-on-one opportunities at Turf Moor as we crashed out of the Worthington Cup on Wednesday.

On the night, Marlon Beresford saved two of the efforts and Robbie poked the other just wide. He almost salvaged the evening with a spectacular volley that rattled the woodwork in injury time - it just wasn't to be.

"I know myself I should have scored," reflected an honest Robbie at Spurs Lodge. "As we all know, football can be like that.

"I think I should have scored two of them but that's the way it goes. There is no point in worrying about it too much, that is when it starts to affect you.

"You can't change anything. You have to concentrate on things you can change. That's the way I look at it.

"I've been through these games before and know doubt I will again. Every striker has a game like that. I'm just looking forward to Sunderland now and hopefully bouncing back with a win."
