Looking up

Posted on 9 February 2005  - 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).

Simon Davies says things are finally looking up as he enters a new era of Welsh football tonight.

The midfielder has endured a nightmare last year or so with hip and shin injuries and then a virus restricting his appearances for both club and country.

However, the 25-year-old looked to be approaching his best again in our win against Portsmouth on Saturday.

After 10 weeks out, that was Simon's third game in quick succession - he's now aiming for a fourth and his 21st Welsh cap as John Toshack takes charge against Hungary at the Millennium Stadium.

"It is a good game for me because I have been out either injured or through illness for so long," said Davies.

"I have played the last few games for Spurs after getting over a virus, so things are starting to look up. It is good to be back involved at club and international level.

"It always seems to be exciting times and this is the first game under the manager and his staff at international level.

"We will see how it goes. The coaching staff have all the pedigree you need to develop a team and we have some good players in our squad as well.

"Hopefully we will get a good mix. I have spoken to the manager regularly, he keeps tabs on how you are feeling and I am looking forward to the game."
