How apt after one of great team and individual performances to beat Inter Milan on Tuesday that Terry Dyson, who gave one of the greatest displays in our European history, is featured in this month's Hotspur.

The double-winning winger is the subject of our 'Big Q&A' feature in the club's official magazine.

Naturally, one of the questions is about the 1963 European Cup Winners Cup Final, when an inspired performance by Terry helped us create history.

Terry scored twice - the second a screamer into the top corner from 25 yards - as we beat Atletico Madrid 5-1 to become the first British team to land a European trophy.

"It was a fantastic occasion," recalled Terry. "The final was in Rotterdam and we'd already played there because we beat Feyenoord in the European Cup in 1961.

"We were so confident in the ability of the team and we just went out and attacked with five forwards.

"We always felt we could score with the likes of Greavsie, Bobby (Smith), Cliff Jones and John White. At that time, we just didn't think we'd get beaten."

Terry answers questions on a variety of topics including his hat-trick against Arsenal in 1961, the greatest Spur ever, Bill Nicholson, Bobby Smith, John White, the double, scoring in the double-clinching 1961 FA Cup Final and Harry Redknapp.

Rafa van der Vaart headlines the latest issue of Hotspur, featuring Heurelho Gomes, Peter Crouch, Gareth Bale, Bobby Smith, Giovani, Jermaine Jenas, Ossie Ardiles, Erik Thorstvedt, Mike Gatting and, marking 50 years since the double season, the key events of November, 1960.
