Euro no-go

Posted on 20 November 2003  - 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).

Simon Davies and Milenko Acimovic saw their dreams of appearing in next summer's European Championship Finals evaporate last night.

Injured Simon watched from the sidelines as Wales fell to a 1-0 home defeat against Russia in the second leg of their play-off at the Millennium Stadium.

That was enough for a 1-0 win overall and means Wales are still waiting to qualify for their first major final since 1958.

Milenko played the full 90 minutes as Slovenia suffered a similar fate.

They lost 1-0 at home to Croatia in the second leg having drawn 1-1 away on Saturday - last night's defeat despite Croatia going down to 10 men early in the second half.

Elsewhere, Mbulelo Mabizela played the full match as South Africa lost 2-0 in a friendly against Tunisia. It was the second match of a North African tour - OJ's side lost 2-1 in Egypt on Saturday.
