WTPS: Teddy: I thought it was all over...

Posted on 9 November 2001  - 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).

Spurs interest in Friday's newspapers is centred on a lengthy piece on Teddy Sheringham by John Cross in the Mirror.

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."
