Four Tottenham players have had their National Football League knowledge put to the test ahead of Super Bowl LVI.

The championship game is taking place on Sunday and will feature the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals as well as the usual assortment of A-list halftime show headliners.

Ahead of the weekend showdown, Spurs stars Lucas Moura, Ben Davies, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Sergio Reguilon took part in a three-round challenge for Betway Insider.

In the video, they play charades, figure out NFL jargon, and attempt to mark teams on a map of the United States.

Spurs have a pre-existing relationship with the NFL and currently host two regular-season matches per year.

Matchday revenue is one of their biggest sources of income and they are even said to be considering a bid to host the 2026 Super Bowl at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The bidding process is much like the World Cup, meaning Tottenham will have to satisfy a number of NFL demands, including parking, accommodation and finances.

Spurs hosted two matches at their stadium in October last year. The games saw the Atlanta Falcons beat the New York Jets 27-20, while a week later the Jacksonville Jaguars triumphed 23-20 over the Miami Dolphins.

The Jaguars and the New Orleans Saints are expected to play in north London later this year, though their opponents are yet to be confirmed.
