Iversen aims for more heroics

Posted on 8 April 2001  - 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).

Steffen Iversen knows what it&rsquo&#59;s like to be a semi-final hero &mdash&#59; he&rsquo&#59;s after more of the same against Arsenal at Old Trafford.<P class=MsoNormal>Our Norwegian hitman scored the goal against Wimbledon that took us to Wembley for the Worthington Cup Final in 1999 and ended up being swept off the pitch on a tidal wave of fans.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;That was a great feeling and it would be nice to do it again,&rdquo&#59; he said. &ldquo&#59;We&rsquo&#59;ll have to wait and see. I&rsquo&#59;ve been working on a few things in training.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>Speaking of training, Steffen, who has lined-up at right wing-back in recent matches, says the lads are looking sharp for Sunday.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;We&rsquo&#59;ve done a lot of work with the new manager, we&rsquo&#59;re looking sharp and everything looks good,&rdquo&#59; he reported. &ldquo&#59;We&rsquo&#59;ve been working on a few new things and hopefully that can carry us through.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;You can&rsquo&#59;t change too much in a week, a few details, but that can be enough. We&rsquo&#59;ve worked on that.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;Training has been very open, the manager asks us what we think about things as well and for me, that&rsquo&#59;s good. I think he can be a very good manager for us.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>And the importance of the occasion hasn&rsquo&#59;t been lost on Steffen. <P class=MsoNormal>He added: &ldquo&#59;It&rsquo&#59;s one of the biggest games we&rsquo&#59;ve played in and if we manage to win, we&rsquo&#59;re almost certain to be in Europe because, if they win, Liverpool look likely to be in Europe anyway.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;The lads are up for it and the good thing is we&rsquo&#59;ve a few players back from Saturday as well.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
