Tottenham midfielder Tanguy Ndombele picked up a n injury in the first half of the game against Sheffield United on Saturday and was eventually replaced by Harry Winks at half time.

While some Spurs fans were worried about the extent of the midfielder’s injury, Ndombele has since been called up for the France squad for the Euro 2020 qualifiers this week, which suggested that the injury wasn’t as bad as feared.

Les Bleus manager Didier Deschamps has confirmed that the injury sustained by the 23-year-old wasn’t serious and that he is expected to recover within 48 hours (L’Equipe).

The Spurs midfielder himself has confirmed that he will be fully fit to take the field against Albania on Sunday but admitted that the game on Thursday against Moldova might come too soon for him (L’Equipe).

While some Spurs fans were relieved to know that Ndombele’s injury wasn’t serious, they questioned the logic of allowing him to leave for international duty if he wasn’t fully fit.


Spurs Web Opinion

Spurs fans’ frustrations are understandable as the last thing we need right now is to lose an important player like Ndombele to another injury. However, one has to remember, in situations like these it is often up to the player himself. Ndombele obviously wants to be part of the French squad and establish himself in the team before the Euros next summer.
