Result: Falkenbergs FF 1-1 Spurs

Posted on 14 July 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 opened up our friendly programme at our Swedish training camp with a draw against Falkenbergs FF on Tuesday night.

Lee Barnard got the ball rolling for Jacques Santini and our new continental-style management team with a fine first goal of the summer after 21 minutes.

The 20-year-old striker finished clinically from Marcel McKie's cross, sweeping home on the half-volley from eight yards, as a youthful line-up competed well against the Swedish Superettan outfit.

Barnard was one of the night's plusses as the new boss took a look at the younger members of his squad - 17-year-olds Jamie O'Hara and Phil Ifil played the second half - and was unlucky to see a second goal disallowed for offside.

The home side, well into their domestic season, had a fair share of the game and eventually equalised via Bjorn Carlsson's fine chip in the second half.
