International round-up

Posted on 26 March 2005  - 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).

Erik Edman added his name to the scoresheet as Sweden ran out 3-0 winners over Bulgaria in Sofia on Saturday.


The left back netted in the 73 minute, his strike sandwiched between goals from Freddie Ljungberg in what was a comfortable afternoon's work for the Swedes in World Cup qualifying group eight.


Another to enjoy an untroubled Saturday was England goalkeeper Paul Robinson, who was not tested in the 4-0 victory over Northern Ireland at Old Trafford. Goals from Joe Cole, Michael Owen, a Chris Baird own goal and a deflected Frank Lampard effort send England into Wednesday's encounter with Azerbaijan at St James Park in good heart.


Jermain Defoe was given a ten minute run-out in place of Wayne Rooney, while Ledley King was an unused substitute.


Also in group four, Simon Davies and Wales did not manage a positive outcome in John Toshack's first competitive game in charge and were defeated 2-0 at home by Austria. Vastic (82) and Stranzl (86) were the goalscorers for the visitors.
