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).

Kasey Keller was the hero as the USA toppled defending champions Canada on Wednesday to reach the final of the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Captain fantastic Kasey saved twice in a penalty shoot-out after the semi-final at Pasadena, California, ended goalless after extra time.

As his team-mates scored all four penalties, our current number two denied Kevin McKenna and Tam Nsaliwa to win the shoot-out 4-2 and book USA a final date with Costa Rica at the same venue on Saturday.

It's the first time USA have been in the final since 1991.

USA coach Bruce Arena reflected: "Going into the shoot-out I felt very confident with Keller. You know he is going to get one."
