In the Fa Cup Quarter Final replay at White Hart Lane Tottenham finally overcame a plucky Fulham side to secure a Wembley Semi Final against Portsmouth. In a classic game of two half’s Fulham dominated large periods of the 1st half and were deservedly leading 1-0 at half time thanks to a Bobby Zamora goal in the 17th minute, which will act as a reminder to Fabio Capello of his credentials as a potential World Cup Striker. However the second half saw Spurs make two inspired substitutions bringing on David Bentley and Roman Pavlyuchenko both of whom scored as Tottenham ran out comfortable 3-1 winners.
They will now fancy their chances of progressing to the Final as they face a struggling Portsmouth side who have been devastated by their sorry plunge into administration. As for Fulham they can be proud of a successful cup run and still have a great chance of progressing in the Europa League .
