Ledley back - in midfield!

Posted on 22 June 2004  - 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).

Ledley King was back in action as England marched on in Euro 2004 last night - playing in midfield.

The 23-year-old came on for Paul Scholes after 70 minutes in a familiar holding position in midfield as England progressed to the quarter-finals with a thrilling 4-2 win against Croatia.

Of course, it's a role Ledley took up at Spurs for most of last season before moving back into defence for the last couple of games.

He was selected for England as a defender and was outstanding in the opener against France in John Terry's absence. Terry was back for the second game against Switzerland and remains first-choice centre-back alongside Sol Campbell.
