Tottenham 4-0 Dinamo Zagreb: Video Highlights

darren bent Tottenham 4 0 Dinamo Zagreb: Video Highlights

Video highlights of Spurs earlier in the season would have been filed in the Horror category, but their performances of late can be found under the Best Seller section, such is the way Tottenham are playing. Harry Redknapp has turned the side into world beaters especially after their convincing 4-0 win against Dinamo Zagreb in the UEFA Cup.

Darren Bent emerged as an unlikely hero after working incredibly hard to score a hat trick. Luka Modric had a wonderful game right behind Bent in attack, and the pair created plenty of chances as did Aaron Lennon on the right and David Bentley on the left.

Other than the performance by Spurs, I was very impressed by the away support of Dinamo Zagreb, the Croatian side. For almost the entire 90 minutes, the away fans were louder than the home fans. They kept on singing loudly with an unmistakeable deep Croatian voice. In the first half, it sounded like they were singing a version of “Yellow Submarine.” And right before the first half whistle, I could have sworn they were chanting “3,000 nutcases” over and over again.

Three thousand nutcases they were as the Dinamo Zagreb fans literally set White Hart Lane on fire with flames that were thrown into the away section. Smoke from the flares swept across the pitch at times. Sure, it created a great atmosphere but the Tottenham officials must have been concerned about the safety of the away and home fans.

Here are the video highlights of Spurs 4, Dinamo Zagreb 0:
