Crouchy sent to all corners...

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).

IT WAS Xtra's favourite end to training on Friday - the 'last-man standing' shooting session.

Around 10 of the lads put themselves up for the 'competition', where the last player to score has the forfeit ofr going 'fetch' as the rest of the 'competitors' boot the ball to every corner of Spurs Lodge.

As always, Clive Allen ran the exercise and we were soon down to three players - Peter Crouch, Rafael van der Vaart and Luka Modric.

The rest of the lads - all watching from the sidelines after they'd scored (and not wanting to lose the opportunity to kick a ball miles away) - cracked up as Luka thought he'd got through, only to see his curler hit the inside of the post and run along the goalline and out.

The final three went on for some time before finally Luka found the top corner.

That much have inspired Rafa, who smashed home his next effort to leave Crouchy as that last-man standing - and last seen trying to pick a ball out from a hedge right over the far side of the training ground...
