Friedel pleased with team ethic

Published Add your comment

Despite taking the man-of-the-match plaudits against Fulham, Tottenham goalkeeper Brad Friedel has attributed Sunday's win to a fine team display.

Spurs were under the cosh for significant periods of the second half, and Friedel was called upon to preserve the visitor's lead on numerous occasions.

The north Londoners, in the end, ran out 3-1 winners but the score did not, perhaps, highlight the defensive resilience Spurs displayed under serious pressure.

And, after the match, Friedel was keen to praise the rest of his teammates for helping Spurs maintain their winning streak.

"All I can say is that we're all really pleased to get a victory," said the American shot-stopper.

"Although 3-1 was maybe a little flattering we showed a lot of defensive qualities and it is definitely not down to one person.

"There were a lot of people throwing their bodies in front of things and getting booted in the face and things of that nature for the cause so it's a really pleasing defensive performance.

"Sometimes you have to go away from home and roll up your sleeves. It is not always going to be pretty. I think people saw with Manchester City (at QPR), they had to dig deep."
