With the FIFA World Cup set to commence in Russia next month, football fans across the world are reeling in excitement. As we are nearing June, countries are naming their squads for the colossal event and England manager Gareth Southgate has included five of Tottenham first-team stars in his squad.
Ever since Mauricio Pochettino took charge of the club, there has been a strong emphasis towards building a team filled with homegrown English talent. Of course, Daniel Levy’s stringent budget left us with no other choice but despite all the adversities, it looks like we have succeeded in achieving the dream.
Consistency has been key since Pochettino’s appointment and that has reflected in our performances. Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Kieran Trippier and Danny Rose have undoubtedly been key to many of our success in recent times.

In fact, upon closer inspection, it is impressive to note that Tottenham have managed to supply quality players in all three departments. When it comes to the attack, there’s Kane who has been nothing short of fantastic this term.
Midfielders Alli and Dier have chipped in with their contributions and enjoyed integral roles for Tottenham, even though the nature of their game varies significantly. Full-backs Rose and Trippier have also been rock-solid for us.
People may argue and debate over our lack of trophies but this is a sure sign of the fact that we are, in fact, progressing in the right direction.
