Carrick to face USA

Posted on 28 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).

Sven Goran Eriksson has named Michael Carrick in the England side to face the USA in Chicago tonight.

The midfielder returns to the fold for the first time since a substitute appearance against Holland - coincidently, at White Hart Lane - back in August 2001.

Jermain Defoe is on the bench as Eriksson opts for ex-Spur Peter Crouch and Palace's Andy Johnson up front.

Eriksson said: "It's good to give them a chance. We know what Jermain Defoe and Alan Smith can do, so it's an opportunity to see these two guys."

The friendly kicks-off at 8.06pm UK time at Chicago's Soldier Field.
