Belgium v England : Belgium Shines in Third Place Play-off

Belgium v England : Belgium Shines in Third Place Play-off

England failed to best their Italia ’90 side, having to be satisfied with a fourth place finish after they were outplayed in St Petersburg. With both teams weary from a pair of punishing semi-final bouts, England’s injury ridden clash with Croatia in particular, both sides could be forgiven for playing their B-teams in this match as they did earlier in the tournament, especially with the Premier League kicking off in just under a month. However, both teams put forward their big guns, with Kane, Rose, Trippier and Dier for England and Alderweireld, Vertonghen and Lukaku for Belgium, in one final […]

England vs Croatia Match Review

England vs Croatia Match Review

The England World Cup dream ended with a devastating 2-1 defeat at the hands of Croatia in the Luzhniki Stadium last night. Running into extra time, the third on the trot for the Croatians, it was a nail-biting affair until the 109th minute, when Mario Mandzukic pushed Croatia ahead and into the World Cup final, relegating England to a third or fourth place finish.  The First Half When the game started, it looked England’s to lose. With yet more demonstration of the intelligent, characterful football this young squad have been playing so well at this tournament, England took the lead […]

England vs Sweden: World Cup Match Review

With a masterful display from the Three Lions on Saturday, England’s World Cup dreams come that little bit closer to reality with a emphatic 2-0 victory over Sweden. The naysayers will say it was ‘only Sweden’, the big guns were eliminated earlier on the tournament and we benefited from the luck of the draw in the early stages, but I’m struggling to care about that when England is in the World Cup semi-final for the first time since before much of the squad that’s inspired the nation so far were even born.

Harry Kane is singled out by Juventus stars

Which Spurs players will be signing contracts for the new season?

With the World Cup going on, news has been a bit quite following Harry Kane’s new contract announcement at the beginning of June where he doubled his weekly wages to £200,000-a-week, keeping him in North London until 2024. Daniel Levy has been tight lipped around new signings, not surprising considering much of the team has been in Russia for the past few weeks and the new stadium’s opening date draws closer and closer. The closest we have come to official announcements is the news that academy players Kazaiah Sterling and Shiloh Tracey have signed contracts, but most first team stars have […]

England Win on Penalties in Moscow: England v Colombia Match Review

It was a must-win situation for England when they faced Colombia on Tuesday night, with both sides fighting tooth and nail for a place in the quarter finals, and after full time slid into extra time, and extra time merged into penalties, England stood victorious on the back of one penalty kick from Spurs own Eric Dier. The First Half The first half was an ugly and uncompromising blur, as both squads fought with the energy of teams faced with their own World Cup mortality. Colombia seemed to have missed the memo that football, not UFC, was the order of  […]

England v Belgium – World Cup Match Review

Thursday night saw the end of England’s World Cup winning streak, as Belgium took a 1- 0 victory courtesy of Adnan Januzaj. Gareth Southgate made a number of drastic changes to the squad that trounced Panama earlier in the competition, choosing to give more players on the squad the opportunity to start, including Leicester’s Jamie Vardy instead of Harry Kane and Spurs defender Eric Dier. The First Half The whole game was weighted with the knowledge that both teams were already qualified for the knock out stages and whoever lost would have an arguably easier route to the final, avoiding Brazil, Argentina […]

Panama Knocked for Six: England v Panama Match Review

England went into this match the favourites, buoyed by a victory over Tunisia on the 18th June, but even with these boosts to an already confident team, not even they could have predicted quite how thoroughly England would beat the Panamanian national side. The First Half Panama went into the game with the warning to England that they would be playing ‘hard’, with Jesse Lingard taking an elbow to the face in the opening minutes. Not deterred however, the unsung hero of the match against Tunisia, Kieran Trippier, continued creating chances for the strikers. With a well placed corner kick from […]

World Cup News: Another Week of Spurs Action

The second week of the World Cup was packed with players representing North London on the national stage, with the opening day seeing Spurs players in every game. Sweden vs South Korea The first match of the week saw Sweden face off against South Korea at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium, with the Korean side looking to capitalise on the talent of our own Hueng-Min Son. The opening stages of the match saw the two sides roughly equally matched, but as the game wore on, Sweden began to dominate, with Andreas Granqvist scoring from a penalty in the 65th minute. Son was reticent in interviews after […]

Harry Kane Brings it Home for England in Volgograd: England vs Tunisia Match Review

England, headed up by Spurs golden boy Harry Kane, kicked off England’s World Cup efforts in style with a 2-1 win over Tunisia on Monday night. With the game book ended by two goals from Captain Kane, England not only beat Tunisia, but they also beat back the expectation the team have set for themselves with the series of lacklustre performances they’ve put in at major tournaments in recent years. The First Half The games opening quarter was everything that coach Gareth Southgate would have wanted it to be. His promises of bold, attacking football and well-oiled sidepieces, practised in their […]

Spurs New Stadium Update: South Stand Almost Complete

Latest Developments at the New Stadium

With the fixture dates being released on the 13th June, whether the listings will say ‘Wembley’ or ‘Tottenham Hotpsur Stadium’ (sponsership dependent) has been the topic of much debate, both with fans and with the managers of the Premier League. Until then however, here is our round-up of the latest developments from the new facility. The retractable pitch works As we reported on before, the new stadiums retractable pitch, designed […]
