In what is probably the least surprising bit of Tottenham Hotspur news you’ll read all week, Gareth Southgate has called up three Tottenham players to his England squad for the upcoming international break. Dele Alli, Eric Dier, and Kyle Walker will all join England’s squad for upcoming internationals against Germany and Lithuania.

Alli, Walker, and Dier are the only three healthy England internationals on Tottenham’s squad, so it’s completely unsurprising that they’d get a call-up. Were they healthy, Harry Kane and Danny Rose would undoubtedly be joining them.

It’s also nice to see that former Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe has been recalled to the England squad! Go get ‘em, JD Trouble.

England travel to Germany for a friendly on Wednesday, March 22, and then host Lithuania in World Cup qualifying on Sunday, March 26 at Wembley Stadium.

In other England news of interest to Tottenham fans, Harry Winks got a call-up to England’s U21 side, Josh Onomah and Kyle Walker-Peters both got U20 calls, Marcus “Messi with an Afro” Edwards, and young keeper Alfie Whiteman both were called up to the U19s, and Japhet Tanganga and Samuel Shashoua both will play for the England U18s.
