After 16 minutes at White Hart Lane, Sigurðsson put the hosts ahead in sensational style.

The Icelandic collected Kyle Naughton's pass and cleverly turned Curtis Davies before firing a 25-yard half-volley beyond the hapless Eldin Jakupović.

Hull were level seven minutes after the interval when Spurs goalkeeper Brad Friedel fumbled Davies' effort into his own net.

That proved to be the final goal of normal time, but the visitors were in front on 99 minutes through Paul McShane, only for Harry Kane to equalise 10 minutes later.

Neither side could find a winner in the time remaining, and so it all came down to a penalty shoot-out with Friedel atoning for his earlier error by saving Ahmed Elmohamady's penalty in sudden death to hand Spurs an 8-7 victory on penalties.
