Clint Dempsey created an own goal and laid in an assist for Emmanuel Adebayor in Tottenham's 3-1 win over Panathinaikos at White Hart Lane. The win sends Spurs through to the final-32 knockouts.
Dempsey's helper allowed Adebayor to open the scoring in the 29th minute. And in heading a 76th-minute inswinging free kick from Kyle Walker off the crossbar, off the ground into the back of keeper Orestis Karnezis and ultimately the goal, Dempsey gave the hosts a lead they never relinquished.
Both were Europa League firsts for Dempsey this season. The draw for the rounds of 32 and 16 will be held Dec. 20 and Spurs are unseeded.
