Spurs around the world

It was a mixed weekend for Spurs internationals as a number of our players were in action for their countries.

Didier Zokora and Young-Pyo Lee continued their World Cup qualification campaigns with the Ivory Coast and South Korea.

The latter maintained their group lead with a 1-0 win over Jordan in Amman, with Young-Pyo playing 67 minutes. Park Chu-Young's 22nd minute goal keeps them ahead of great rivals North Korea on goal difference.

But it was disappointment for Didier and the Ivory Coast as they were held to a 0-0 draw by minnows Madagascar in Antananarivo. The midfielder played 90 minutes.

Gilberto also got a full game for Brazil on Friday, but it was more disappointment for the Samba Boys as they were defeated 2-0 by Venezuela in a friendly held in Boston, USA.

It ended a 15-match unbeaten run for the five-time World Champions and proved not to be the ideal preparation for up-coming World Cup qualifiers with Paraguay and Argentina.

Spurs-bound Luka Modric, meanwhile, netted the only goal of the game from the penalty spot as Croatia opened their Euro 2008 campaign with a 1-0 win over hosts Austria in Vienna.
