UCL: Tottenham 3-1 Inter

Van der Vaart, Crouch, Pavlyuchenko on target for Spurs; Eto'o for Nerazzurri

LONDON - Van der Vaart, Crouch and Pavlyuchenko scored as Tottenham Hotspur beat injury-hit Inter 3-1 at White Hart Lane to join the European champions on top of Group A.
Samuel Eto'o netted ten minutes from time for his seventh goal in this season's Champions League.
Played in by Modric, van der Vaart opened the scoring with a crisp shot on 18 minutes. Inter could have brought the teams on level terms at the break, only for Cudicini to produce a wonder save from the Dutchman's curling free kick.
Spurs doubled their lead on 61 minutes when Bale stormed down the left and swung in a cross for Crouch to slot in from close range.
Eto'o reduced the arrears with a clinical finish from Sneijder's assist on 80 minutes, but Pavlyuchenko made extra sure of the points a minute from time, tapping in Bale's cross at the far post.
