Happy Spursday, Spursland! Today, Tottenham Hotspur travel to Switzerland to take on FC Basel in the UEFA Europa League. In case you missed it last week, we drew 2-2, so a 1-1 or 0-0 draw in this match will see Basel through to the semifinal. Gareth Bale and Aaron Lennon are both injured because we did something to anger the football gods. Our team has no wingers. It's super fun. Here are the lineups.
TOTTENHAM Friedel, Vertonghen, Naughton, Dawson, Walker, Dempsey, Parker, Holtby, Dembele, Sigurdsson, Adebayor— FOX Soccer Trax (@FOXSoccerTrax) April 11, 2013
BASEL Sommer, Park Joo Ho, P Degen, Dragovic, Schar, Serey Die, Stocker, F Frei, Salah, Elneny, Streller— FOX Soccer Trax (@FOXSoccerTrax) April 11, 2013
I assume that's going to be Moussa Dembele next to Scott Parker with Lewis Holtby as an attacking midfielder and Clint Dempsey on the right, but who knows. Kickoff is at 8 pm UK, 3 pm ET from St-Jakob's Park in Basel, Switzerland. You can catch the game on ITV1 in the UK, FOX Soccer in the US and Sportsnet World in Canada.
