An intimate look at how Tottenham Hotspur stars fared for their countries this week
Tottenham Hotspur players had a pretty productive time in the international break. Many of them played key roles in their national squad during the FIFA 2022 World Cup Qualifying campaign.
Giovani Lo Celso and Cristian Romero secured a place in the coming World Cup with Argentina following a 0-0 draw against Brazil. The latter unfortunately picked up a thigh injury and had to be substituted in the 53rd minute. Emerson Royal was an unused sub in this fixture as the Selecao had already sealed their place in the World Cup before their fixture against La Albiceleste.
Harry Kane scored four goals against San Marino as England booked their berth in the prestigious FIFA 2022 Qatar World Cup in style. They trashed the Titani by 10-0 on the night.
Son Heung-Min also found himself on the scoresheet for South Korea as he struck from the penalty spot against Iraq and went on to win the game by a scoreline of 3-0. It would be fair to say that the Spurs attacking duo enjoyed their respective fixtures on the 16th of October.
Davison Sanchez played the entire 90 minutes for Colombia in their 0-0 draw against Paraguay on 17th October. Los Cafeteros are currently situated in 4th position in their qualifying group.
Steven Bergwijn scored and grabbed an assist in an important fixture for the Netherlands that saw them secure qualification for the 2022 World Cup with a 2-0 victory over Norway on 17th October.
Ben Davies and Joe Rodon both played a crucial role for Wales who held Belgium to a 1-1 draw to secure a hard-fought point on 17th October. Davies also registered his first international goal for the Dragons in their previous fixture against Belarus on 14th October.
