Iversen leads international calls

Posted on 6 February 2002  - 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).

In-form striker Steffen Iversen has been called straight back into the Norwegian squad.

The 25-year-old was out of action for the best part of four months after picking up a leg injury in his last international match.

That was back in September but he's battled his way back to fitness and has now scored three goals in his last four starts.

Oyvind Leonhardsen is also in the squad for the friendly against Belgium in Brussels on Wednesday February 13.

Two more of our players have already been called up for a busy night of international friendlies.

Goalkeeper Kasey Keller, fresh from his CONCACAF Gold Cup triumph in California last weekend, is named in the USA squad for the prestigious friendly against Italy in Catania.

Meanwhile, Simon Davies is again part of the Wales squad for the glamour game against World Cup favourites Argentina at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium.

This friendly was organised in just four days after the South Americans had requested to play under Cardiff's closed roof in preparation for their World Cup group match against England in Sapporo - Japan's indoor stadium.

England's squad for the trip to Holland will be announced over the weekend - Ledley King has been tipped to be included for the first time.

Ciaran Toner has been named in the Northern Ireland Under-21 squad for the home friendly against Germany on Tuesday February 12.

The 20-year-old has recently returned from a loan spell at Peterborough United, where he made his Football League debut.

Ben Bowditch is in the England U19 squad to face Germany at Ipwich's Portman Road on Thursday February 14, Nicky Eyre is in England's U17 squad against Slovakia at Stevenage Borough on February 13 and Jonathan Black is in the Northern Irish squad for the game against Scotland on February 10.
