The first international break of the season is next week and England will have two Tottenham Hotspur players on their roster. England manager Roy Hodgson released his team for two upcoming EURO 2016 qualifiers and both Harry Kane and Ryan Mason have made the cut.

England start the international break by playing an away match at European minnows San Marino on Saturday, September 5, and follow up with a home match against Switzerland on Tuesday, September 8. Both Kane and Mason made their international debuts for the England senior side last March in matches against Lithuania and Italy: Kane was a second half substitute against Lithuania (where he scored his first international goal) and played 90 minutes against Italy, while Mason earned his first cap as a substitute against Italy.

Congratulations to both Kane and Mason! Request to Roy Hodgson: please make sure the bubble-wrap is securely fastened around Kane; we need him.
