  • Description

    EXCITED FANS SWARMED ONTO THE GROUND AT WHITE HART LANE, TOTTENHAM TODAY (SATURDAY) AS TOTTENHAM HOTSPURS' JIMMY GREAVES SCORED THE WINNING GOAL FOR THE HOME TEAM IN THEIR MATCH AGAINST MANCHESTER UNITED.

    GREAVES' GOAL CAME CLOSE TO THE FINAL WHISTLE ONLY MINUTES AFTER TEAM MATE ALAN GILZEAN HAD EQUALISED MANCHESTER UNITED'S FIRST HALF LEAD.

    MANCHESTER UNITED'S GOAL WAS SCORED BY DENIS LAW AFTER 43 MINUTES OF PLAY. HE HEADED THE BALL HOME FROM A CORNER KICK. IT LOOKED AS THOUGH MANCHESTER UNITED HAD THE GAME WON, WITH NOBBY STILES PROVING AN EFFECTIVE BLOCK FOR SEVERAL ATTACKS BY JIMMY GRAVES.

    THEN SPUR'S KEITH WELLER PUT THE BALL INTO UNITED'S GOAL MOUTH AND GILZEAN GOT IT INTO THE NET. GILZEAN WAS ALSO RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SECOND SPURS' GOAL A MINUTE OR SO LATER AS IT WAS FROM HIS PASS THAT GREAVES SCORED.

    AFTER THE FANS WERE CLEARED FROM THE PITCH, THE GAME WENT ON BUT MANCHESTER UNITED WERE UNABLE TO MAKE A COMEBACK.

    A CROWD OF MORE THAN 56,000 WATCHED THE GAME WHICH FEATURED SOME OF THE MAJOR STARS OF ENGLAND'S VICTORIOUS WORLD CUP TEAM.
