Tottenham Hotspur failed to complete a signing for the second transfer window in a row the January, making it 12 months since a new feature came in. Since then the club have announced five different opening dates for their new stadium, but all five fell through and the latest update says the 62,000 seater won’t be ready until at least March 2019, leading to further rental of Wembley Stadium.
Since then, Spurs were the most represented club at the 2018 World Cup in Russia with 12 players on show. England reached the semi-final, and the run to the last-four included a penalty shootout win over Colombia where three Spurs players stepped up and scored. The Three Lions eventually bowed out to a Croatia team inspired by Luka Modric.
The North-London club’s talisman Harry Kane won the tournament’s Golden Boot and Kylian Mbappé shot himself into the worldwide limelight after lighting up the stage in Russia in helping France lift the trophy for the second time in their history.
