No pressure

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 has insisted there was no pressure on Robbie Keane to open his goalscoring account.

Our Irish superstar did just that in spectacular style in Sunday's win at Blackburn Rovers - leaving three defenders in his wake before smashing the ball into the top corner.

Jamie Redknapp's late winner made it a satisfying afternoon's work for the club.

"There was no pressure put on Robbie," explained Glenn at Ewood Park. "When you are not creating chances for a striker or he's not getting chances, that's when you have a problem.

"Robbie's been getting in there, had a few chances and it was just a matter of one going in.

"The goal, that's what Robbie can give us. When we bought him, we said here was someone who could manufacture goals himself.

"We had strikers who could finish the end of the jigsaw but Robbie has a both of both and proved that. Now he's off and running I'm sure there's more to come."
