Barclays Premier Asia Trophy - Day 1

After Day One of the Barclays Premier Asia Trophy competition being held in Beijing, China it will be a Tottenham v Hull City final on Friday.

Tottenham beat West Ham 1-0 in the first game and West Ham's day was made worse when Luis Boa-Morte was stretchered off after damaging his cruciate knee ligaments. It is expected that Boa-Morte will be out of action for the next six months.

Tottenham's winner was scored by Jermaine Defoe.

In second game, Hull City drew 1-1 with the hosts Beijing Guoan. Geovanni opened the scoring for Hull and Beijing equalised just after the second-half restart from Midibo.

Hull eventually won 5-4 on penalties.

So the line-up for Friday is West Ham v Beijing (for 3rd and 4th place) and Tottenham v Hull (Final).
