Bentley enjoys dream home debut as Spurs hammer Roma
David Bentley made a dream home debut for Spurs yesterday, scoring two goals in the 5-0 hammering of Serie runners-up Roma at White Hart Lane. Darren Bent also netted a brace to bring his pre-season goals tally to twelve.
The Tottenham line-up included new signings Bentley, Luka Modric, Giovani dos Santos and Heurelho Gomes. The London side were ahead within three minutes from a Bentley free-kick and some terrible play by Artur in the Roma goals.
The Italian side were awful, mis-hitting passes and not really looking bothered about chasing back. Spurs, however, were in no mood to indulge the Italians showing no mercy. Aaron Lennon got the goal of the game after a great run and a perfect lay-off by Mexican teenager Giovani dos Santos.
