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).

Phil Ifil was an unused substitute as England lost out to France in the final of the European Under-19 Championships in Northern Ireland on Friday night.

Lee Holmes put England ahead just before half-time but a stirring second half comeback saw the French home 3-1 with goals from Mohamed Chakouri, Abdoulaye Balde and Yohan Gouffran at Windsor Park.

Phil started two of the five matches in the tournament.
