Spurs Abroad: Tottenham Hotspur in the 2018 World Cup

The two-year cycle of major international tournaments is just about long enough for England fans across the country to recover from the last national disappointment and to start getting naively excited again for the next, by asking themselves one simple, yet devilishly provocative question: Could this be our year? It has been 52 years since the three lions raised their one and only World Cup trophy and knowing England, we’ll probably be waiting 52 more. Nevertheless, Tottenham Hotspur have a first-class side with players dotted all over the world… If England can’t win, it could be down to a Spur […]

Match Report: Leicester vs Spurs The famous Leicester duo, Mahrez and Vardy, scored two stunners to beat Spurs at the King Power Stadium. It only took Vardy 13 minutes to open the scoring after an ambitious, yet beautifully timed, lob shot which swooped over the head of Lloris from roughly ten yards out. Schmeichel was in fine form against the Lilywhites, having denied threatening efforts from Moussa Sissoko and Dele Alli to preserve a Foxes lead.   To add to Tottenham’s frustrations, Mahrez showed his individual talent by attacking Spurs down the wing, before cutting in on his left side […]

Davinson Sanchez tipped the ball past his own keeper in an unfortunate attempt to clear a low driven cross from Ryan Bertrand on the left-hand side. Fully-stretched, Sanchez slid across his own box only to tap the ball onto the inside post […]
