Tottenham won the Feyenoord Jubilee Tournament with a comfortable 3-0 victory over Borussia Dortmund.

Having defeated Celtic in their first game of the competition, Tottenham made light work of brushing aside their Bundesliga opponents in Rotterdam as Darren Bent, Giovanni dos Santos and Jamie O'Hara were on target.

Tottenham did not have to wait long to take the lead as Bent fired an effort past Dortmund goalkeeper Marc Ziegler on 10 minutes following good work by Jermaine Jenas.

The goal was Bent's ninth in the space of a week in an impressive pre-season for the former Charlton striker and was the stand out event in a low tempo first half.

New signing Giovanni was fortunate to escape at least a booking midway through the first 45 minutes as he clattered Marc Kruska to demonstrate an aggressive edge.


Dortmund failed to offer a significant attacking threat as only Nelson Valdez showed some neat touches and Mladen Petric went close with a curling free-kick.

After the interval, Tottenham came out intent on securing the comfortable cushion that a second goal would ensure.

And they appeared to be denied a penalty nine minutes into the second half when David Bentley, making his first Spurs start, was upended by Max-Julius Hummels in the 18-yard area.

However, Juande Ramos' men did not have to wait long for a second as captain Jenas was again influential, setting up Giovanni, who deftly flicked home from close range with his left foot on 55 minutes.

Tottenham then dominated proceedings as shot-stopper Heurelho Gomes was largely a spectator and O'Hara added a deserved third with two minutes remaining as he tapped home a weighted cross from young substitute Adam Smith.
