Keane spot-kick sinks City

Published Add your comment

Tottenham skipper Robbie Keane grabbed a late winner against Manchester City to keep alive his side's hopes of a European place with a 2-1 victory.

Jermain Defoe had opened the scoring at White Hart Lane, then was involved in a clash that led to one of the assistant referees being injured and replaced at half-time.

Valeri Bojinov equalised for City but Keane scored the winner from the spot, meaning the race for seventh place in the Barclays Premier League will go to the wire.
