The summer transfer window has closed, and football now takes a collective breath as it heads straight into an international break. For Tottenham Hotspur, that means for some players an opportunity to catch a breath of their own after what was an incredibly busy stretch of matches over the past few weeks.
Some players such as Eric Dier, Harry Kane, and Harry Winks, don’t get that breather as they’ve all been immediately called into Gareth Southgate’s England squad for three upcoming Nations League matches against Wales, Belgium and Denmark. Thankfully, it sounds as though at least one Tottenham player on the brink of returning from injury will get some additional time. Today, it was announced by Alasdair Gold in Football.London that Giovani Lo Celso has been withdrawn from the Argentina squad due to the same thigh injury that has kept him out of the past few Spurs matches.

I’d be okay if NONE of Tottenham’s players participated in this particular international break, considering it’s a great opportunity to get a little rest. For someone like Gio, it’s even better. I don’t know if this means that his injury is more serious than we thought or if he just doesn’t want to risk injuring it further, but either way it’s okay by me.
Here’s a full list of all the Tottenham players who have been called up to their international squads for the upcoming international break.
- England: Harry Kane, Eric Dier, Harry Winks
- Wales: Ben Davies
- France: Hugo Lloris
- Ireland: Matt Doherty
- Belgium: Toby Alderweireld
- Denmark: Pierre-Emile Højbjerg
- Colombia: Davinson Sanchez
- Netherlands: Steven Bergwijn
- Spain: Sergio Reguilon
- Ivory Coast: Serge Aurier
