Tough in Toulon

Posted on 12 June 2003  - 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).

Rob Burch got the nod to play in England's first group match in the Toulon International Tournament on Wednesday but it ended in disappointment against Portugal.

In fact, our young goalkeeper was in fine form as Portugal dominated throughout, eventually taking advantage of an England sending off just before the break to run out convincing 3-0 winners.

Rob and his defence managed to hold firm until the 51st minute but two goals in 10 minutes ended the the contest.

Ben Bowditch came on as a second half substitute.

England's next group match is against Argentina in Toulon on Friday.
