Any Spurs players involved?
Boy howdy are there ever! If you’re a Spurs fan this is the day you want to stay glued to the TV. First, Son Heung-Min will lead South Korea against a Sweden side with a very good defense. Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen, and Mousa Dembele will lead Belgium against Panama. And then there’s England, which features Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Danny Rose, and Kieran Trippier. I doubt all of them will start, though.
How about former Spurs?
There’s a few! Nacer Chadli is also part of the Belgium Red Devils, and let’s not forget about (sob) Kyle Walker on England’s squad.
Any transfer targets or rival players I’m probably interested in?
Not really! The good players are pretty well known in all of these teams. Besides Son, Ki Sung-Yeung is Korea’s other really good player, but also keep an eye on Salzburg forward Hwang Hee-Chang who might get more space as players key in on Sonny.
What cool things has SB Nation posted recently?
I’m glad you asked!
- Kim McCauley writes that clubs are boring at the World Cup because boring is effective.
- El Tri fans, rejoice — you got the big win you wanted over Germany.
- Mexico City actually suffered a man-made earthquake as their entire country celebrated beating Germany.
- There have been a lot of penalty kicks in the World Cup so far. They’re hard defend! You can simulate that here.
