This was a very special game for my favourite football team, Tottenham (nickname Spurs). It was their first home game in the top European competition since 1962, 48 years ago!
And they won. The goalscorers were van der Vaart (Holland), Pavlyuchenko 2 pk (Russia) and Bale (Wales).
The score of 4-1 seems like an easy win, but it wasn’t. The penalty kicks were a little lucky and FC Twente played very well. Spurs will need more luck when they play the European champions, Inter Milan.
