Tottenham´s Jermain Defoe showed Sven-Goran Eriksson what he was missing at last year´s World Cup by coming off the bench and scoring a later winner in a 2-1 win to denying Manchester City a place in the top four.

Eriksson famously chose to take Theo Walcott rather than Defoe to Germany - and Defoe gained some sort of revenge at White Hart Lane.

Rolando Bianchi cancelled out Pascal Chimbonda´s controversial opener before Defoe grabbed the winner with seven minutes left, just after Stephen Ireland was given a straight red card for a lunge at Young-Pyo Lee.
