Poyet's England wish

Posted on 20 June 2002  - 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).

Gus Poyet insists that he very much hopes England emerge victorious against Brazil for the good of the English game in which he plies his trade.

The Uruguayan rejects the South American option and says he would love to see England progress.

"I hope it's England!" said Gus. From my point of view, if you look at South America, Brazil are the only ones who are there and there is a lot of rivalry between Brazil and Uruguay.

"It would be great for English football and, because I am playing in England, I would love to see them go through."

Gus says that it is vital for England's chances of succeeding to keep possession of the ball as much as possible and not let Brazil dictate play.

"It is very difficult to keep the ball away from Brazil. England are capable of and need to get the ball and keep the ball as much as possible - even if they are not attacking.

"If they can make Brazil run behind the ball it will be great, Brazil don't like that, they like to have the ball. But, at the same time, it is difficult to get the ball back when Brazil is in possession.

"You have to be strong in every aspect of the game against Brazil. You cannot make fouls around the box because you know they have magnificent free-kick takers. You cannot let them play free - you have to take care of every aspect."
