Top award for Robbie

Robbie Keane was named Player of the Tournament at the Barclays New York Challenge.

The striker was in fine form in the 2-1 win against the New York Red Bulls on Thursday and the 2-2 draw against Sporting Lisbon on Sunday.

Captain for all three matches in America including the earlier draw against San Jose, Robbie equalised against Red Bulls before Gareth Bale secured a 2-1 win at the Red Bull Arena, Harrison, New Jersey.

On Sunday, he opened the scoring against Sporting and then set-up Jon Obika's equaliser after the Portuguese side hit back to lead 2-1.

His displays certainly impressed boss Harry Redknapp. "He looked sharp, bright and it was a fantastic finish against Sporting," he said. "He's quality player."

Sporting ended up taking the trophy by virtue of a one goal better goal difference.
