Cliff Jones put Tottenham 1-0 up when he took the ball on the edge of his own penalty area, passed to Alan Gilzean in midfield and ran on to meet Gilly's left wing cross at the far post, where he headed the ball into the net in the 43rd minute.

Valencia brought the score level in the 85th minute, as Roberto took advantage from the spot after a debatable penalty was awarded.  However, with full-time seconds away, Eddie Clayton burst through a bunch of Spanish defenders to drive the ball home and see Spurs through to a 2-1 win against the crack Spanish side.

11.11.1964 Spurs faced a Scotland XI in memory of John White, who had died four months previously, sheltering from a storm on Crews Hill golf course. 

Thick fog had prevented the game kicking off on the scheduled date of the night before, but an entertaining game thrilled the big crowd, with John's brother Tommy (a centre forward with Hearts) guesting and hitting the first Spurs goal.  Tony Marchi added a second, with David Wilson and Alan Gilzean equalising for the Scottish XI, before the stepped up a gear and in the last quarter of an hour went on a scoring spree to leave the score 6-2 to the opposition, thanks to Neil Martin's brace and further goals from Gilzean and Willie Wallace

08.06.1963 Tottenham toured South Africa after winning the European Cup Winners Cup and met a South African XI in the Johannesburg Rand Stadium.

It was the start of a long relationship with the South African public, who long remembered the trip and the 3-1 Spurs win that night.  With the woodwork struck four times in the match by Tottenham, the goals from Eddie Clayton, Bobby Smith and Jimmy Greaves were just reward as the Spurs players were denied time and again by a great performance from keeper Trevor Gething.  The goalie so impressed Tottenham, they offered him the chance to play in England, but he opted to stay in his home country.

16.11.1959 Crack Russian team Torpedo Moscow came to Britain on a tour and met Spurs at a foggy White Hart Lane.  Lev Yashin appeared as a guest in goal for Torpedo, but he was unable to stop Spurs running out 3-2 winners.  

Bobby Smith was industrious and was warned by the local referee about his robust hassling of Yashin, who held the ball for a long time before releasing it and Smith was trying to hurry him up.  Spurs were a goal up in five minutes from Dave Mackay, as his shot deflected off Alexander Medakenin to confuse Yashin and in the 13th minute, Bobby Smith almost doubled the lead, but his header dropped into the keeper's arms off the post.  EIght minutes later, Smith was rewarded with a goal when he got on the end of Terrry Medwin's header from Mackay's free kick and it was left to the striker to shoot high into the net to make it 2-0. 

A minute later, Torpedo pulled a goal back thanks to Slava Metreveli's pass providing the opening for Valentin Ivanov to shoot past Bill Brown.  Maurice Norman, Mackay and Dave Dunmore all combined to produce a opportunity for John White to finish and make it 3-1 after just 26 minutes. 

As expected the Moscovites came back into the game in the second half and ten minutes in, Bill Brown and Dave Mackay both did their utmost to keep the goal protected as they stopped the ball on the line and then Peter Baker had to be quick to keep out a Metreveli effort.   However, with ten minutes left, Metreveli played in Eyev to score the second Torpedo goal.

Teams : 
Spurs -   Brown, Baker, Marchi, Norman, Blanchflower (c) (Henry),
Mackay, Medwin, White, Bobby Smith, Dunmore, Cliff Jones

04.06.1959 The end of the Russian tour came in Leningrad, where Spurs met the Russian Olympic XI.

It was a physical game, which came at the end of a long season and a long trip, but the 1-3 reverse was a true reflection of the game, against a side which was more of a Russian select XI in front of 100,000.

Johnny Brooks hit the Spurs goal, but it was not enough to stop a determined Russian team winning out.

01.06.1959 Tottenham moved onto the warmer city of Kiev to play a match against Dynamo Kiev in front of a 60,000 crowd. 

Spurs had trained in the Kruschev stadium on three mornings approaching the game, but the ground had a dusty and bumpy pitch that made play difficult, but Spurs put their game together and Johnny Brooks finished a move to make it 1-0 after 21 minutes, hooking home a cross from Terry Medwin. 

However, Oleh Bazilichev got Kiev level, cutting in from the right to fire a shot into the top corner and it was 15 minutes from the end of the game when Tottenham sealed a 2-1 win when Maurice Norman and Peter Baker linked well on the right side of the pitch to provide the ball for Dave Mackay.  The midfielder moved it on to Eddie Clayton and his pass put David Dunmore one on one with the Kiev full-back, taking him on and slipping the ball inside for Brooks to slide it past the keeper for his second of the game.

Teams : 
Dynamo Kiev - 
Gavashy, Suchkov, Erokhin, Voinov, Golubev, Turansaik, Bazilevich (Sekech), Lobonovsky, Kanevsky, Sabo, Dikovers.

27.05.1959 Spurs travelled to Russia for a friendly against Torpedo Moscow and it took only five minutes before Terry Medwin had given Tottenham the lead.  Danny Blanchflower's free-kick found Medwin and his shot flew in off a Torpedo defender. 

The remainder of the first half saw Spurs dominate and they were unlucky to turn around with just the one goal advantage.  Johnny Brooks hit a screamer of a shot that the Russian keeper did well to keep out.

As Torpedo pressed in the second half, Spurs had to defend strongly and they restricted Hollowbread to just three shots to save, but things hotted up outfield and some skirmishes littered the play.

08.12.1958 A floodlit friendly saw Tottenham host our Romanian guests of the Bucharest Select XI and run out 4-2 winners.

An 18th minute Cliff Jones goal opened the scoring, followed by Terry Medwin's strike in the 27th minute.  When Jones was fouled in the area, Tommy Harmer confidently swept home the penalty to give Spurs a 3-0 lead with 50 minutes having elapsed.  However, Constantin powerfully headed past Hollowbread in the Tottenham goal to pull a goal back five minutes later and  with 66 minutes on the clock, Eftimie set the same player up for the Romanian's second goal.  A goal with 13 minutes left saw Alfie Stokes ensure a 4-2 Tottenham win with a shot from Harmer's cross.

Teams : 
Spurs - 
Hollowbread, Hills, Henry, Dodge, Norman, Iley, Medwin, Harmer, Bobby Smith, Stokes, Cliff Jones

27.03.1958 Spurs travelled to Holland to play a Rotterdam Select XI and won 4-1 at the Sparta Rotterdam stadium 4-1, thanks to goals from Terry Medwin, Johnny Brooks, Bobby Smith and Tommy Harmer.

The match was in aid of the city's Children's hospital and coincided with a visit to Rotterdam by the Queen.  It was played in pouring rain, but in a good spirit.  Terry Medwin had driven home a first half goal to give Spurs the lead, then into the second period, Medwin turned provider, playing a short pass to Johnny Brooks to shoot home.  Tommy Harmer scored a rare header - diving in to head like a bullet past the keeper and Bobby Smith scored Tottenham's fourth with a shot from 25 yards out.  A strong selection from Sparta, Feyenoord, VVV Venlo and Excelsior struggled as Tottenham's slick passing on a fast pitch left them stretched, but they did pull a goal back towards the end, with Johnny Hills unfortunately diverting the ball past Ted Ditchburn.

Teams : 
Rotterdam Select XI -  van Dijk (Sparta), Kirkum (Feyenoord), de Koning  (Sparta), van der Lee (Sparta), den Hartog (Excelsior), Bak (Feyenoord), van Ede (Sparta), Bosselaar (Sparta), Wilkes (VVV), Rijvers (Feyenoord), Moulijn (Feyenoord).

08.05.1954 Spurs made their way up to Hamburg from Brunswick, but had to stop a while to capture a cockerel given to them as a memento of their visit.  The game was equally as eventful.

Spurs took a 2-0 lead early in the second half after a placid first period.  Les Bennett and Sonny Walters hit the goals, but the home side pulled one back with 20 minutes remaining.  With only moments left, the referee awarded an indirect free-kick to Hamburg, but then changed his mind to make it a penalty.  The award was converted and the final whistle blown straight after, in what appeared to be a generous decision to allow the game to be drawn.

29.09.1953 The first floodlit friendly at White Hart Lane saw French side Racing Club de Paris visit N17, with the second half of the game televised live on television.

Having tested the floodlight out with an amateur match a few nights before, Spurs rolled out the Band of the Grenadier Guards to welcome the crack French side Sporting Club de Paris, with the match being covered on TV.

A Jean Courteaux goal handed Sporting a first half lead, but into the second half, the goals came thick and fast.

Spurs were level just two minutes after the re-start, with Len Duquemin equalising and shortly afterwards Les Bennett gave Tottenham the lead. George Hutchinson and captain Ron Burgess made it 4-1 and then Bennett grabbed a fifth with 69 minutes gone.

Paris rallied with two goals from Bruey (who had replaced Brazilian Yeso Amalfi) and Courteaux rounded off the scoring in the 87th minute to reduce the final deficit to 5-3.

Wreaths were laid to the home baseball team's Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig by captains Ron Burgess and Johnny Carey ahead of the game in front of a then record crowd for a football match in New York.

United were quickly on the attack and a goal from Jack Rowley gave them the initiative, but Spurs soon imposed themselves on United and Les Bennett equalised with a header within a minute of United's goal and then put Tottenham 2-1 ahead.  First Division champions United soon succumbed to a fine display by Spurs, as a goal from Sid McClellan and four from Len Duquemin saw a masterful performance end in a 7-1 win.
