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).

Gary Doherty will have to wait to transfer his recent fine domestic form onto the international stage as the Republic of Ireland's match against Denmark has been cancelled because of frozen terraces at Lansdowne Road.

Although the pitch was still fit for play, officials were left with no option but to abandon when it was decided they could not guarantee spectator safety on the terraces due to the freezing conditions.

The match was scheduled to kick off at 7.45pm, but a deterioration in the weather was expected during the course of the day.
