ENGERLAND! The Three Lions are hoping for a win today against Slovenia to clinch a berth in next summer’s World Cup in Russia. Consequently, expect a pretty high-powered and first choice lineup out of Gareth Southgate.
There are five Tottenham players in Southgate’s squad: Harry Kane and Eric Dier are both likely to start today, while Dele Alli is suspended by FIFA for this match and Kieran Trippier is likely to sit in favor of former Hotspur Kyle Walker. Harry Winks is the fifth, called up to the senior squad for the first time this week, but if he earns his first cap it will likely be in Sunday’s match in Lithuania.
