Blow for Spurs pair

Posted on 9 May 2005  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Leigh Mills and David Button suffered a European and World Championship blow as England Under-17s lost to Italy on Sunday.

The 1-0 defeat to the hosts meant England finished third in the group and therefore failed to progress to the semi-finals of the European Championship Finals.

Unfortunately, that means no trip to Peru for the World Finals later this summer as the winners, runners-up and third place play-off winners only go on to represent Europe in that tournament.

The Spurs pair both played as the Italians won Sunday's clash via a first half penalty at the Stadio Simone Redini Piazzale, Cascina.
