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).

Neil Sullivan has been called-up for Berti Vogts' first game in charge of Scotland.

And the current Scottish number one faces the ultimate test in front of his new national boss - World and European champions France in a friendly next Wednesday.

Sully will be aiming for his 26th cap at Saint Denis.

Former German chief Vogts has named a young squad for his first game.

He said: "For international players, it is not only a friendly - we are not playing Cyprus or Malta, we are playing possibly the strongest team in the world.

"I think this squad of 22 has a very good balance of experienced players and young players.

"I wish all the players the best for the game in Paris and it's a big chance for them to play against France.

"I have to look to the long-term and I'm hoping that the young generation can come through.

"I'm looking to these young players at the moment, but you never know in the future."

Scotland squad: Douglas (Celtic), Gallacher (Dundee Utd), Sullivan (Tottenham), Caldwell (Newcastle), Crainey (Celtic), Dailly (West Ham), Matteo (Leeds), McNaughton (Aberdeen), Pressley (Hearts), Weir (Everton), Cameron (Wolves), B Ferguson (Rangers), Hughes (Rangers), Gemmill (Everton), Lambert (Celtic), McNamara (Celtic), Severin (Hearts), Crawford (Dunfermline), Freedman (Crystal Palace), McCann (Rangers), Miller (Wolves), Thompson (Dundee Utd).
