26th May - Spurs in History
26th May, 1962
Tel Aviv Select XI 1 Spurs 2 (Friendly)
The F.A.Cup winners went on a two game tour to Israel in the close season. With Maurice Norman, Jimmy Greaves and Cliff Jones unavailable due to World Cup duties, it was an otherwise full strength team that played in these games.
Spurs won this game through goals from Dave Mackay and Eddie Clayton while the final game four days later against Haifa Select XI was won by 5-0 with the goals being scored by Mackay, John White, Frank Saul, Les Allen and Clayton.
