XI topple Fulham

A strong Spurs XI team beat Fulham 3-0 in a friendly at Spurs Lodge on Wednesday.

Robbie Keane opened the scoring early from the penalty spot and it took until the 82nd minute for Roman Pavlyuchenko to double the lead from 25 yards.

Harry Kane was then upended in the penalty area in the last minute and picked himself up to slot home from the spot for the final 3-0 scoreline.

Keane started up front with Giovani and coach Tim Sherwood switched the front two for the second half with Pavlyuchenko partnering in-form youngster Kane.

Stipe Pletikosa, Alan Hutton, Kyle Naughton, Sebatien Bassong, Sandro, David Bentley and Niko Kranjcar all started.

Sandro played the full 90 minutes and it's also worth noting that young defender Steven Caulker, outstanding on loan at Yeovil last season, played 70 minutes on his return from injury.

Tim said: "We had a lot of experienced players out there and sometimes these friendly matches are all about their fitness.

"It was good to see Sandro play 90 minutes and Steven Caulker made his comeback. He was told to take it easy and therefore only played the 70 minutes.

"It was another good test and the players should all have got something out of it."

Spurs XI: Pletikosa, Hutton (Byrne, 46), Naughton, Livermore, Bassong, Caulker (Durojaiye, 70), Bentley, Sandro, Giovani (Kane, 46), Keane (Pavlyuchenko, 46), Kranjcar (Luongo, 78).
