Spurs fan Sutter explains Switzerland commitment

Young Boys' 'English' fullback Scott Sutter is in line to play for Switzerland against his home country this week.

Playing against Spurs, the club he supported as a kid, at the beginning of the season brought Sutter to the attention of fans in this country.

A White Hart Lane season ticket holder at the age of 10, he said: "The games with Spurs put me on the radar in England. People suddenly realised there was another English-born player playing abroad.

"Of course I would have loved to have kept myself available to play for England but it didn't look like happening, so there was no way I could turn down this opportunity to play for Switzerland."
