Spurs coach Jol wants early trophy success

Tottenham boss Martin Jol is travelling to South Africa with a full-strength squad in order to win the Vodacom Challenge.

The 25-man squad includes the entire Tottenham front line, Darren Bent, Robbie Keane, Dimitar Berbatov and Jermain Defoe.

With fixtures against Orlando Pirates and defending champions Kaizer Chiefs to look forward to, Jol said: "The Vodacom Challenge will provide us with a great opportunity to step up our preparations ahead of the start of the Premier League season. Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs are well-known sides who will provide particularly tough opposition.

"We already have a strong connection with South Africa from our last visit to the country in 2003 and through our work with SOS Children's Villages where we have funded a home in Rustenburg.

"The people in South Africa love their football and we look forward to being a part of three exciting matches later this month."
