Lee Young-pyo’s team, Tottenham beat Arsenal 5-1 yesterday in the second round of the English Carling Cup Semifinals. Lee played out the entire 90 minutes without scoring any goals.

In the third minute, Tottenham’s Jermaine Jenas shook the net. Again at 27, an Arsenal player kicked a goal into his team’s own net, ending the first half as 2-0 victory for the enemy. Robert Keane, Aaron Lennon and Steed Malbranque added three more goals for Tottenham. Emmannuel Adebayor scored one goal at the 70th minute, preventing a shutout game for his team Arsenal.
