Twelve players from Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) will look to light up the world cup. Let’s look at Who they are:
The Spurs captain has earned himself the Captains armband of Southgate’s English squad traveling to Russia. He is undoubtedly England’s most important player and the hopes of the nation will rest on the star strikers shoulder.
Another important member of the Three Lions. Southgate will look to him to pull the strings from midfield and also pop up with the odd goal.
The youngster has had an incredible season and hence has earned a call-up to the English squad. He will fight for a start with Liverpool’s Trent Alexander Arnold.

He has been a regular in the England team, but his recent injuries have had him side-lined and haven’t got back to his best yet. Even then, he is still one of England’s finest right-backs and his experience will help them a lot in Russia.
To think that Danny Rose was playing for Bristol City and Kyle Walker was at QPR in the Championship at one point. Both in the England squad for the world cup 💪🏻 pic.twitter.com/AowOUVoBaG

The midfielder’s selection was a no-brainer. His abilities in the middle of the park and his versatility to play as a centre back earns him a place in the English team.
The Spurs shot-stopper is the captain of the Le Bleus and his commanding presence at the back along with his incredible reflexes makes him an important figure in the France set-up.

Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen:
The defensive pairing that has worked wonders for the Spurs, will once again try to emulate their success for the Belgium Red Devils.
Mousa hasn’t been given enough opportunities at Spurs this season but will play an important role for Belgium at Russia.
The 25-year-old will spearhead the frontline for his country and will look to perform as well as he has been at club level for his National team.

Spur’s midfield maestro will look to pull the strings in the Denmark midfield as he has so beautifully done for Tottenham at club level. He will also captain the side at the World cup.

The towering defender will look to make a mark in Russia. The world cup call-up will mean it’s his first major tournament and will cap off an exceptional season for the 21-year-old.
