Three Spurs helps England U-21s advance to Euro finals

Michael Steele

England are going to the U-21 Euro finals, and it is in part due to three Tottenham Hotspur players. Harry Kane, Tom Carroll and Eric Dier all played in the Young Lions' 2-1 win over Croatia in the second leg of their play-off on Tuesday night that earned England a spot in next year's finals.

Carroll played a role in England's first goal, hitting the corner kick that Liam Moore got on the end of inside 10 minutes. Kane was then involved in their second, fighting for a ball that he couldn't win outright, but left free for Will Hughes to jump on and finish. Dier got the start at right back and was solid to do his part in the win.

Joining England in the Euro finals is Milos Veljkovic's Serbia so Spurs have four players who played roles in qualifying sides. Serbia shocked Spain, 2-1, over two legs to book a spot in the finals.

The finals will be played next summer from June 17-30. Eight teams qualified for the tournament and it will be played in four venues across the Czech Republic.
