Teddy targets Europe

Teddy Sheringham's England career may look over but the Tottenham striker is aiming to make up for the disappointment by leading his side into Europe.

Spurs captain Sheringham was not picked in Sven-Goran Eriksson's squad for England's friendly against Portugal on Saturday.

And, at 36, it could well be that Sheringham's international days are over as Eriksson prepares for the 2004 European Championship.


To get rid of him would have been disastrous

That is likely to benefit his White Hart Lane club, who added Republic of Ireland striker Robbie Keane to their ranks on Saturday.

"The aim is to do better than last year and that means getting into Europe," said Sheringham.

Spurs went top of the table after their win against Southampton on Saturday and, although Sheringham is buoyed by the arrival of Keane, he is remaining cautious.

"We don't need to get carried away," he said.

"I think Charlton was our best performance but there were three other games that on a bad day we could have got beaten so that's something to remember."

He added: "Robbie's a class player. He's a very good player. For the club to go out and spend 7m is great and can only enhance our chances of doing well in the Premier League."

There is still talk that Darren Anderton could be leaving for Leeds when the transfer window re-opens but Sheringham feels that would be a major blow to Spurs.

"Darren is world-class in my view. To get rid of him would have been disastrous but he's here now and hopefully he'll stay.

"There'd be a lot of people in for Darren Anderton if he became available."
