Spurs in Europe again

The top football club competition in Europe is the European Champions League, which was won last season by Manchester United, who beat Chelsea in the final.

However there is also another European football competition, the UEFA Cup. The clubs in the UEFA Cup are of an extremely high standard, but they are not quite as good as the elite clubs that can enter the Champions League.

My favourite team, Tottenham Hotspur (nickname Spurs) is now in the UEFA for the fourth time. Last week the 1st round matches were played. Spurs played at home against Wisla Krakow (Poland) in the 1st leg. Spurs have had a terrible start to this season, played 4, lost 3, drawn 1, but at last they had a victory 2-1 against Wisla. The scorers were Bentley and Bent, and here is Bent’s goal.

But this is a very slim win for Spurs, and Wisla can easily win the return game in Poland, to knock Spurs out of the UEFA Cup.
