Football: Jermain Defoe hits hat-trick in Spurs' 6-0 win over South China
HONG KONG (AFP) - Tottenham Hotspur eased to a 6-0 romp over a hopelessly outclassed South China on Saturday in Hong Kong with Jermain Defoe scoring a hat-trick and setting up another successful strike.
The match was played in sodden conditions at the sell-out 40,000 Hong Kong Stadium after several days of heavy rain.
But in front of a watching David Moyes, whose Manchester United play there on Monday, Defoe made light work of a pitch that had large amounts of sand thrown on it.
The England striker, 30, whose future at Spurs has been the subject of speculation, set up Clint Dempsey on 34 minutes, the American striker side-footing home from close range.
