SEOUL (AP) - Robbie Keane scored two goals Monday to give Premier League team Tottenham Hotspur a 3-1 victory over South Africa's Sundowns FC on the fourth day of the Peace Cup tournament in South Korea.
Keane shot a winning goal 33 minutes into the first half, and then followed up with another 12 minutes into the second half at the match in Suwon, just south of the capital, Seoul.
Frederic Kanoute also scored for his Premier League team six minutes into the second half.
Lerato Chabangu of Sundowns FC opened the scoring for his team at 33 minutes in the second half, but could not bring it to victory.
In another game held in Busan, Argentina's Boca Juniors and Spain's Real Sociedad tied scoreless.
Eight teams from around the world are competing in the Peace Cup. The winner of the July 24 final at Seoul's World Cup Stadium will take home a $2-million US prize.
The Peace Cup was last held in South Korea in 2003, capitalizing on the nation's newfound interest in soccer after its surprise standout performance in the 2002 World Cup, which it co-hosted with Japan.© The Canadian Press 2005
