A chapter in a famous North London derby is set to be played out in the SAR as Tottenham make their debut at this year's Hong Kong Football Club Philips Lighting International Soccer Sevens tournament and are likely to face long-time rivals Arsenal. Both teams are believed to be sending young players for the annual event but a clash between the two sides is always entertaining. Yesterday's draw for the May 23-25 tournament put Arsenal in group A with two-time defending champions Urawa Red Diamonds from Japan and newcomers South China. PSV Eindhoven and Spurs are in group B. In the masters event, reigning champions Lorenz All Stars will be led by former Germany great Uwe Bein. Debutants Marseille All Stars will have two of France's 1982 and 1986 World Cup finals stars, Alain Giresse and Manuel Amoros.
