Spurs in History - 16th February

16th February, 1999
Wimbledon 0 Spurs 1 Worthington Cup Semi-Final 2nd Leg

There have been few really successful evenings for Spurs supporters to remember in the last two decades but this is one of them. A single goal from Steffan Iversen in the Worthington Cup Semi-Final 2nd Leg match was sufficient to secure a place in the Final at Wembley.

Spurs and Wimbledon had played a series of five League and Cup games through January and February and all had been very close. Having drawn 0-0 in the 1st Leg, this was the really important one with a place in the Final at stake. Spurs showed great resolve and the second half goal was well deserved. The players held on through a frantic final few minutes and then the fans swarmed onto the pitch to join in the celebrations.
