A second set of artistic images featuring the World Cup from over the last 88 years along with some morsels of WC trivia, much with a Spurs connection.
We start with this version on a liberty from the US competition '94.
Below the England stamp which had a short run of 'England Winners' added after the final.
During the 1982 qualifying competition England traveled to Norway which saw England beaten, the game concluded with this wonderful summing up by the home commentator.
"Lord Nelson! Lord Beaverbrook! Sir Winston Churchill! Sir Anthony Eden! Clement Atlee! Henry Cooper! Lady Diana! Maggie Thatcher, can you hear me, Maggie Thatcher! Your boys took one hell of a beating! Your boys took one hell of a beating!"
Three more of the team posters designed by ESPN in 2010. L-R Spain, Mexico and the USA.
Left - A postcard from the 1950 finals.
Norway again, in 1994 Tottenham's goalie, Erik Thorstvedt conceded just one goal in his three games. It still wasn't enough for his teams to escape the group stages.
The first Spurs man to captain his country at the finals was Danny Blanchflower, Northern Ireland, 1958.
Right - 2002 and a street mural in South Korea.
The first Spurs man to manage a team at the finals was Alf Ramsey for England in 1966 after being a player at the 1950 event.
World Cup posters - 1934, 2014 and 1930.
Left - A French stamp for 1938.
The first Spurs man booked in the finals - Gascoigne 1990 and the first penalty scored was Gary Lineker in the same competition.
