Posted on 14 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).

We kept a close eye on Ledley King as he shone in England's defence against France on Sunday...

Ledley was outstanding alongside Sol Campbell as England kept dangermen Thierry Henry and David Trezeguet quiet all game

However, as we all know now, Zinedine Zidane wiped out England's 1-0 lead with two goals in injury time.
