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 found themselves on the losing side as England were defeated 3-2 by Turkey in the UEFA Under-17 Championships.


England still sit top of Group A courtesy of the 4-0 win over Belarus in the opening game and still stand a good chance of making progress with Italy to come in the final group match on Sunday.


A first half brace from Tevfik Kose gave Turkey a two goal lead at half-time but a second-half double from Joe Garner brought England back into the match before a magnificent goal from Nuri Sahin saw the Turks triumph.
