When was the last time Spurs won a trophy?
Spurs last won a trophy on 24th February 2008 where they beat Chelsea 2-1 at Wembley Stadium to win the League Cup. It was the fourth time that Tottenham Hotspur had won the League Cup.
It was the first League Cup Final to be played at the new Wembley Stadium and was the first League Cup Final to be played in England since 2000, when the old iconic Wembley Stadium was demolished to make way for the new home of football.
The League Cup was known at the time as the Carling Cup due to a lucrative sponsorship deal with Carling. It was the first time Spurs had won a trophy since the 1998/99 season where they won the League Cup in a 1-0 win of Leicester City – ending their trophy absence of 9 years.
How did Spurs win their last trophy?
Spurs overcame the odds to defeat a Chelsea side, that, at the time, were a dominant force in English football.
Chelsea scored first in the League Cup Final between Spurs and Chelsea through the talismanic Didier Drogba. His free-kick in the 34th minute meant he was the first player to have scored in 3 League Cup Finals as reported by The Independent.
Spurs equalised through a Dimitar Berbatov penalty in the 68th minute after Wayne Bridge was judged to have handled the ball. The goal sent the League Cup Final into extra-time where Spurs would go on to win the trophy. A Jonathan Woodgate header 3 minutes into extra time from a Jermaine Jenas proved to be the difference between Spurs and Chelsea and Spurs would go on to lift the League Cup. This is the last time Spurs have won a major trophy.
Winning the League Cup Trophy for Tottenham Spurs meant that they would qualify for EUFA Cup qualification (now the Europa League) – a trophy they have won 2 times previously. That season, Spurs finished 11th in the Premier League so without winning this trophy, they would not have qualified for the UEFA Cup.
