Posted on 13 February 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).

Chris Hughton got off to a flying start in his new role as Ireland's assistant manager against Scotland on Wednesday night.

Steve Carr and Gary Doherty were in the Irish line-up as goals from Kevin Kilbane and Clinton Morrison secured a 2-0 win at Hampden Park. Neil Sullivan played in goal in the first half for Scotland.

Ledley King was part of a bright second half display from the a young side including as England crashed 3-1 against Australia at Upton Park.

The stylish defender earned his second full cap as the second half finished 1-1 - but the damage had been done by a 2-0 half-time deficit.

Simon Davies helped Wales set a new record of nine unbeaten matches but it took a late John Hartson goal to force a 2-2 draw against Bosnia at the Millennium Stadium.

The best news for Wales arguably came before the match when Goran Bunjevcevic's Yugoslavia - the country now named Serbia & Montenegro - were held to a 2-2 draw by Azerbaijan in Euro 2004 Group Nine. Wales top that qualifying group.

Milenko Acimovic had a night to forget as his Slovenia team were hammered 5-1 by Switzerland.

Steffen Iversen's Norway lost 1-0 in rain-lashed Greece while Lars Hirschfeld's Canada enjoyed a 4-2 win in Libya.
