Tottenham-Chelsea: Spurs Bag Carling Cup

Clement AndreauCorrespondent IFebruary 24, 2008

The Carling Cup Final between Chelsea and Tottenham today at Wembley stadium was a very exciting game between two teams hungry for a title.

Chelsea had the best start with a goal from Didier Drogba at the end of the first half (39min).

Back from the African Cup, Drogba scored a superb free kick placed 25 meters from the goal. Drogba shot a powerful and accurate ball on Robinson's left side and  the goalkeeper could not see the ball coming, blinded by the wall. 

In the second half, both teams were playing good, attacking football.

Tottenham were really pushing and Berbatov once again displayed his talent.

Finally, after 25 minutes in the second half, Berbatov scored a penalty after the referee whistled on a handball in the box by Bridge.

No team could score until the end of the second half, despite good moves from Lennon and Berbatov for the Spurs, and the entrance of Kalou for Chelsea, combined with a very active Drogba.

The two teams came back for extra time, and Tottenham only waited 4 minutes to score.

After a free-kick by Jenas, Woodgate headed the ball and scored, 2-1 for Tottenham.

Tottenham held on to their advantage thanks to Robinson's stop on Kalou's shot.

Tottenham takes away the Carling Cup from Chelsea, and win their first title since 1999.
