Iversen the hero

Posted on 13 October 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).

Steffen Iversen was Norway's hero in a vital Euro 2004 qualifying win in Romania on Saturday.

The Spurs striker bagged the only goal of the game from Liverpool's John Arne Riise's corner just six minutes from time.

In a game of few chances on a waterlogged pitch, Iversen rose unmarked to head home from close range to leave Norway level on points with Denmark at the top of Group Two.

Elsewhere, Sergei Rebrov started on the bench as Ukraine toppled Greece 2-0 in Kiev while neither Goran Bunjevcevic or Milenko Acimovic featured in Yugoslavia's fine 1-1 draw in Italy or Slovenia's 5-0 defeat in France respectively.
