Two Tottenham players make England's Under-20 World Cup team

Michael Regan

But not who you think!

Two Tottenham Hotspur players have been selected for England's squad for the upcoming FIFA Under-20 World Cup, making it six Spurs players who will represent England at major youth international tournaments this summer. Harry Kane and Alex Pritchard will represent their country under coach Peter Taylor in Turkey.

Kane has played 18 times for senior squads this season, making five appearances at Norwich and 13 at Leicester City. Injuries have hindered his campaign a bit, but he scored two goals during his time with Leicester. Pritchard has spent most of his year with Tottenham and has also dealt with injuries, but spent time on loan at Peterborough United.

There's obviously something about Tom Carroll I'm not getting if he's been left off both this team and the Under-21 team, but whatever. Raheem Sterling, Nick Powell and Will Hughes aren't in this team (or the U-21s) either, so I'm going to assume that it means nothing. Congrats to Pritchard and Kane, along with the Under-21 players. The Under-20 team is pretty light on accomplished true center forwards, so expect to see Kane get some time. They're a bit better off in attacking midfield spots ... but there's no Carroll, Powell or Hughes! That bodes well for Pritchard.
