Nuts about Brazil

Posted on 14 January 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).

Chris Hughton will soon prepare Ireland for the biggest test in world football - Brazil.

In his role as Ireland's assistant boss, Chris will prepare the side - likely to include fellow Spurs Robbie Keane, Stephen Carr and Gary Doherty - for the friendly at Lansdowne Road on February 18.

The game was confirmed earlier in the week and Chris beamed: "It's a fantastic friendly and testament to Irish football that Brazil are happy to come to Dublin.

"From a coaching point of view, my association with Ireland allows me to work in a different domain both with international players and preparing to play international teams.

"To prepare for a game against Brazil, the best team in the world - it doesn't get better than that."

Brazil won the World Cup in 2002 with the re-emergence of Ronaldo. He is expected to play in a full-strength Brazil side that will also include the likes of Roberto Carlos, Ronaldhino, Rivaldo and Cafu.
