Spurs in History - 12th June

12th June, 1966

Mexico National XI 0 Spurs 1 (Friendly)

On their close season tour, Spurs played two games in Mexico City. Originally, this game had been billed as against ‘local opposition’ but was changed to a game against the Mexican International team who were leaving for the World Cup finals in England.

The match was played in front of a crowd of 100,000 people in the newly built stadium with Alan Gilzean scoring the only goal of the game, ten minutes from time. The only first team member missing from the touring party was Jimmy Greaves who was with the England team in their preparations for the World Cup.
