Johannesburg, July 24 : Rafael van der Vaart's double led Tottenham to a 3-0 win over Orlando Pirates in the final of a preseason tournament in South Africa on Saturday. Van der Vaart scored in each half and Jermain Defoe added a third for the English Premier League team's first win in three matches on tour. 

Van der Vaart curled in a 35th-minute free kick and the Netherlands midfielder broke clear for his second in the 53rd. Defoe's volley made it 3-0 with three minutes left after Tlou Segolela had missed a penalty for Pirates, South Africa's league champions.

Tottenham was given an automatic place in the final at Johannesburg's Ellis Park. The team was captained for the second straight game by Chelsea transfer target Luka Modric.AP
