After the recent overload of figures and statistics in the FiFa Files series we turn our attention back to some of the art work, including some from India that has surrounded the competition with a mix of Spurs related trivia.
Top - A poster from 2014 and Right -the Indian stamps issued for the same competition.
The first Spurs substitute 'off' in the World Cup finals was Martin Peters for England in the quarter final 1970 with German.
The first Tottenham man 'on' was Glenn Hoddle in the 1982 group game with Czechoslovakia.
Below Right - 1962 poster.
What was strange about Arron Lennon being substituted in 2006 V Portugal?
He went on for Beckham after 52 minutes than with a penalty shootout looming he was taken off in the 119th. The man who replaced him for the shootout was Carragher who had his shot saved and England were eliminated.
Left - 1982 Spain and the Pablo Picasso influence.
And Below - Argentina 2006.
Two Tottenham men have appeared in the World Cup finals on their 'home' patch.
Greaves (1966) and Paulinho (2014).
Above three posters from 2010 produced by ESPN - Italy, England and Greece.
Below - The Russian stamps for this summer.
The last England goal by a Spurs man was Defoe V Slovenia in 2010 when they won 1-0. Since then England have played four, lost three and drawn one.
The more 'serious' stuff will return shortly.
