ENGLAND. Brad Friedel's stop on Ahmed Elmohamady's spot kick earned Tottenham the Capitol One Cup win over Hull City in a marathon shootout but not before he gave up a comical own goal to allow the
Tigers to tie the game in regulation.
After a spectacular goal from distance by Gylfi Sigurdsson put Tottenham ahead, Curtis Davies had the whole goal to shoot at but his attempted tap-in went across the six-yard box and hit Friedel, who was on his knees, and deflected into the goal.
and Hull City both scored in overtime to make the final score 2-2 before Spurs won 8-7 in the shootout.
