Happy Spursday, Spursland! Today, Tottenham Hotspur takes on Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk in the UEFA Europa League. Dnipro are in Ukraine, which you've probably seen in the news. Dnipropetrovsk is not close to Kiev, so Spurs aren't in any danger, but don't expect to see too many fans in the stadium today.
Here's the Tottenham lineup, and it's pretty strong.
Our team tonight - Friedel; Naughton, Dawson, Vertonghen, Rose; Bentaleb, Capoue, Paulinho; Chadli, Soldado, Townsend. #COYS— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) February 20, 2014
Our subs tonight - Archer, Fryers, Veljkovic, Eriksen, McEvoy, Onomah, Kane. #COYS— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) February 20, 2014
And here's Dnipro.
Dnipro XI v Spurs: Boyko, Mazuch, Kankava, Giuliano, Konoplyanka, Cheberyachko, Strinic, Zozulya, Rotan, Fedetskly, Matheus. #UEL— bet365 (@bet365) February 20, 2014
The most recognizable name there is Yevhen Konoplyanka, but there's plenty of talent in this lineup. Rotan and Zozulya are Ukraine regulars, while Guliano is better than your typical Replacement Level Brazilian In Eastern Europe. Kickoff is at 1 pm ET, 6 pm in the UK. You can catch the game on ITV4 in the UK, FOX Sports 2 in the US and Sportsnet One in Canada. The game is also available online on the streaming platforms of all of those outlets.
