Spurs ace Jenas dedicates goals to new baby

Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas has dedicated his two goals against Wigan to his new baby daughter.

Jenas, 24, became a father for the first time last week as girlfriend Sabrina Keogh gave birth to daughter Sancha Natascha.

He struck twice in the first half on Sunday and could have had a third but missed the target after a superb solo run.

He said: "My girlfriend gave birth to our first child last week so the goals were a tribute to her. My first love has always been football. Then my baby has come along and I've realised there are more important things in life. It's fantastic.

"It was just a shame not to celebrate with a first hat-trick."
