Spurs put up another five goal performance and produced their third consecutive clean sheet in preseason competition by crushing AS Roma 5-0 at White Hart Lane yesterday. Darren Bent added two more goals to his summer spree, David Bentley scored twice in his debut at The Lane and Aaron Lennon pushed through another.
Over 35,000, Tottenham fans were introduced to Luka Modric, Gio dos Santos and David Bentley, to rousing cheers. Roma, the second place finisher behind Inter Milan in Serie A last year, had very little to say about matters as they were swept away under the enthusiasm of the expectant crowd.
The highly successful preseason now gives way for the first Premiership match of the 2008/09 campaign, a road trip to the Riverside and a bout with Middlesbrough on Saturday.
