Bale nets in Spurs triumph

Published Add your comment

Gareth Bale was on the scoresheet as Tottenham completed their United States pre-season tour with a comeback victory over the New York Red Bulls.

Bale, who was left on crutches following a challenge from Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam in Saturday's goalless draw against their Barclays Premier League rivals, started this friendly and headed home a 58th-minute equaliser to cancel out Kenny Cooper's early penalty for the hosts.

New signing Gylfi Sigurdsson then curled in a superb match-winning strike seven minutes after Bale's goal to give Andre Villas-Boas' men a 2-1 win at Red Bull Arena.
