My favourite football team, Tottenham Hotspurs (nickname Spurs) played their first match of the season yesterday.
It was away to Hearts (Scotland) in the first leg of the Europa Cup qualifying round. Spurs played really well and won 5-0 with goals from van der Vaart (Holland), Defoe (England), Livermore (England), Bale (Wales) and Lennon (England).
The second leg will be next week at White Hart Lane, Spurs’ home ground, and Spurs have a very good chance to progress to the next round.
