Nomvete finds going tough


As early as the second minute, before Spurs even had a chance to settle, the Danish League leaders were a goal up, and about 20 minutes later Nomvete had a chance to make it 2-0 but his right-footed drive from 25 metres, flashed past the left of Paul Robinson’s goal.

A short while later, Aalborg were two goals in front, and just prior to the half time whistle, Nomvete fouled Didier Zokora.

In fact, the former Kaizer Chiefs’ player committed another foul just seconds after the break, which intimately resulting in Spurs starting their comeback.

Moments after Michael Dawson went down; Dimitar Berbatov had the ball in the back of the net, and by the 51st minute, the scores were level.

And the man, who has recently been ignored by Carlos Alberto Parreira, was substituted 10 minutes later, just before Darren Bent netted the winner.

While Spurs top Group G with six points, and are on the brink of qualifying for the next stage, Aalborg find themselves bottom of the five-club table, which also includes Anderlecht, Getafe and Hapoel Tel Aviv.

Nomvete’s teammate Benedict Vilakazi also travelled to White Hart Lane but spent the entire match on the bench.
