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).

Paul Robinson kept a clean sheet as England overcame Wales - including Simon Davies - at Old Trafford, while Robbie Keane's Republic of Ireland secured a point against France.


The goalkeeper and Jermain Defoe represented Spurs in the England line-up as goals from Frank Lampard and captain David Beckham sealed a comfortable 2-0 win, with Ledley King making a late substitute appearance at left-back.


Wales were forced into a late reshuffle when Andy Melville was injured during the warm-up. The setback forced Simon into an unfamiliar right-back role, denying the Welsh midfield his obvious quality and energy.


In Paris, Robbie played his part as the Republic comfortably held the former world champions to a goalless draw on their own patch. It was a game of very few chances and our man had little opportunity to score the goal to break his and Niall Quinn's joint goalscoring record for the national team.


He has a good chance to do this on Wednesday when Brian Kerr's side tackle the Faroe Islands in Dublin, while England head to Azerbaijan.
