Defoe has not started a game during Spurs´ dismal start to the season and was not even on the bench against Arsenal last Saturday, but he scored with his first touch in the first leg of the UEFA Cup first-round clash.
His impish chip came after Spurs had put themselves within sight of the group stages, with three goals just before the break adding to Younes Kaboul´s opener. The Cypriots were woeful but pulled a goal back, but Defoe scored the sixth in stoppage-time with a curling effort into the top corner.
