Teddy admits that he's believed his England days were over in the past but is now looking forward to, hopefully, being part of next summer's World Cup Finals.
He says: "There have been various times over the last three years when I thought my time was up, like in France 98 when Michael Owen first came on for me and I thought: 'Well, that's it - I've blown my chance.'
"It happened again during Euro 2000 when I didn't get picked. But I took a positive out of that and I had my best break for seven years and had eight weeks off.
"That gave my body a rest and I came back with enthusiasm for the season.
"I've thought a few times: 'That was my last England game.' But if you keep trying then I think I've proved what can happen."
Spurs interest in Friday's newspapers is centred on a lengthy piece on Teddy Sheringham by John Cross in the Mirror.
