Tottenham Retain the Unofficial World Club Championship with Ease!

Barney Corkhill@@BarneyCorkhillSenior Writer INovember 7, 2008

The tenth game in the history of Barney Corkhill's Unofficial World Club Championship (UWCC) took place last night as Tottenham defended their crown for the first time against Dinamo Zagreb at White Hart Lane.

In the first ever UEFA Cup UWCC match, Tottenham were looking to continue their fantastic recent form under Harry Redknapp.

Some were speculating whether the wave of momentum following Redknapp's arrival would have ended by the time this match came around. The answer? No.

Another great performance from Spurs gave them a comprehensive win over the Croatian side, as it ended 4-0. It was the second time since Redknapp took over that Tottenham had scored four in a game.

The first goal came after half an hour as Darren Bent smashed a shot past the Zagreb 'keeper, and the second came just three minutes later, again from Darren Bent.

They continued in that vain in the second half as well, as Tom Huddlestone struck a lovely volley to make it 3-0, before Darren Bent topped off the scoring, in the process completing a fantastic hat-trick.

In doing so, he became the first player in UWCC history to score a hat-trick.

Of the 21 voters in the poll, 61.9 percent said that Dinamo Zagreb wouldn't beat Tottenham, so well done to you if you got that right!
