A host of Tottenham Hotspur stars were on duty with their respective national teams on Tuesday, trying their best to claim a place in their countries’ respective World Cup squads.

In England’s 1-1 draw with Italy at Wembley, Eric Dier started in central midfield but finished at right-back. Kieran Tripper also earned a start for the Three Lions before being replaced by Danny Rose at the hour mark. However, Dele Alli was an unused substitute against the Italians, as per the club’s official website.

Club’s mainstay this season, centre-back Davinson Sanchez was an unused substitute for Colombia as they were held to a 0-0 draw by Australia at Fulham’s Craven Cottage.

In-form forward Son Heung-min was played for the South Korean side that put up a late fightback in Poland, only to concede in the injury-time and suffer a heartbreaking 3-2 defeat.

Poland led by two goals in the first-half but two goals in less than three minutes at the death saw South Korea draw level, only to lose 3-2 in the end. The Asian team’s first goal was assisted by Son but the 25-year-old, just like his teammates, will be devastated by the way they lost the game.

Tottenham’s marauding right-back Serge Aurier was a part of the Ivory Coast team that beat Moldova 2-1 in France. Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen kept a clean sheet as Belgium beat Saudi Arabia 4-0 on Tuesday. Mousa Dembele came on for the last six minutes in Brussels.

Skipper, Hugo Lloris played for 90 minutes as France earned a comfortable 3-1 victory over World Cup hosts Russia. Christian Eriksen played the first 64 minutes of Denmark’s 0-0 stalemate with Chile.

Elsewhere, on-loan midfielder Josh Onomah completed the whole game while Kyle Walker-Peters was on the bench as England Under-21s widened the lead at the top of their European Under-21 Championship qualifying group to five points with a 2-1 win over Ukraine.

Jack Roles, a development squad midfielder, had to witness his nation, Cyprus, suffer an upsetting 1-0 defeat at home to Sweden in the European Under-21 Championship qualifiers.

On-loan starlet Marcus Edwards was substituted midway through the second half as England Under-20s thrashed Portugal 3-0 at Manchester City’s Academy Stadium.

Defender Japhet Tanganga was named as a substitute, as England Under-19s lost their final European Under-19 Championship elite round qualifier 2-0 to hosts Macedonia. However, the result didn’t affect them as the Young Lions had already secured top spot in their group.

Meanwhile, youth academy star Troy Parrot started the game for Republic of Ireland Under-17s against Poland. Parrot scored a penalty in the second half to help his nation top their group in European Under-17 Championship elite round qualifier.

On Monday, defender TJ Eyoma played the full game, with midfielder Oliver Skipp making a late entry in England Under-18s’ 2-1 victory over Belarus at St. George’s Park.

Ben Davies was withdrawn in stoppage time as Wales lost 1-0 to Uruguay in China, in the final of the ‘China Cup’ tournament.
