Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas paid tribute to Jermain Defoe after he equalled Martin Chivers’ club record of 22 goals in Europe.
Defoe’s fantastic record of scoring in Europe continued in Moldova on Thursday evening when he scored our second goal in the 2-0 win against FC Sheriff.
It wasn’t a classic performance by any means, but victory means that we can secure our place in the next 32 of the competition when Sheriff travel to the Lane on November 7th.
I doubt that Defoe’s goal will be enough to see him make the starting line-up when Hull are the visitors on Sunday, especially when Roberto Soldado scored his first Premier League goal from open play in our recent win at Villa.
“It is some achievement,” Villas-Boas told Sky Sports after the match. “If we continue like this, there is a big chance he will break the record.
“It will be another great achievement for him. I am sure he will achieve it.
“Let’s not celebrate it before it happens, but it will be a great record for him and the club. It was another great performance by Jermain.”
