QUIZ: Can you name the Spurs starting XI from the 2008 League Cup?

Kyle Picknell

Let’s take a trip down memory lane, Spurs fans…

So this is it, Tottenham versus Liverpool tonight at the Wanda Metropolitano in the Champions League final, and the chance for Mauricio Pochettino to give Spurs their first trophy since the 2008 Carling Cup.

And of course, win himself a very first trophy in management.

What an opportunity for the Argentine and what a trophy to potentially break the duck for both himself and the club.

For the time being though, let’s just take a few minutes to revisit that Spurs League Cup winning side of 2007/08 led by Juande Ramos, who came from behind to see off an Avram Grant Chelsea side thanks to an extra-time winner from an unlikely source.

You’ll probably remember the opening goal of the game, a ridiculous Didier Drogba free-kick, and hopefully, you’ll remember the one in the 94th minute that gave Spurs their first trophy in nine years.

But how well do you remember the starting lineup? You have (a very generous) five minutes to get all XI Spurs players that started the game. I’d wish you good luck but you shouldn’t need it.
