Young Tottenham ace withdraws from maiden international call-up due to injury



Japhet Tanganga pulls out of England U-21 squad due to injury

As reported by the Evening Standard, Tottenham Hotspur youngster Japhet Tanganga has withdrawn from the England U21 national team squad due to an injury.

The 21-year-old had been called up to the squad by manager Aidy Boothroyd for the first time for the Euro Qualifiers against Andorra and Turkey. However, he has now had to withdraw with an injury.

In their places, Brandon Williams of Manchester United, Liverpool defender Rhys Williams and Bournemouth forward Sam Surridge have been called up. (h/t Evening Standard)

It has been a frustrating period for the young defender. The 21-year-old has been struggling with injuries since the back end of the last season. Tanganga missed a series of fixtures post-lockdown due to a back injury, while he was unavailable for the start of the ongoing campaign with a thigh strain.

Tanganga did make an appearance in our victory against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup last week. However, he missed the subsequent fixtures against Maccabi Haifa and Manchester United in the Europa League and the Premier League respectively.

Tanganga enjoyed a breakthrough campaign last time out under Jose Mourinho. The youngster made a huge impression in the side, in spite of him being played out of position on a number of occasions.

Following another injury setback, hopefully, Tanganga recovers within the time for the Premier League game against West Ham. With the club not signing a new central defender, the 21-year-old will have a huge role to play in the season.
