Every Tottenham player to look out for at Euro 2020 this summer

Given the talent in the Tottenham squad, it is granted that many of the Lilywhite players will be featuring at the Euros this summer. 

Here I will talk about how I think the Spurs players will get on at the tournament and how I expect the nations they are representing to do.

The information on which players are going to the Euros is from the Evening Standard.

Hugo Lloris

Starting off with the skipper himself, Lloris will be the first Tottenham player mentioned here playing at the Euros.

After winning the World Cup with France in 2018 as their captain, Lloris should be nailed on to start most, if not all of their games in the competition.

Lloris is currently in good form and has stopped Tottenham from falling even further into despair this season. So he shouldn’t make too many mistakes and will likely be one of the best goalkeepers there.

France are in the group of death but are still my favourites to progress into the round of 16. It is very plausible that France will get to the final or the semi-final at the very least.

Ben Davies

Davies is unlikely to bring much to the Welsh national team. His disappointing appearances at Spurs have got an out of form Reguilon starting ahead of him.

However, he is sure to play for Wales with them not having great full back choices.

It is a throw up for who comes second in Group A. Despite Italy failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, they are the best team by far in their group.

The other three teams in Group A are Turkey, Wales and Switzerland. Any team could get second but Wales will have the best chance.

The points are likely to get spread around the group. So even if Wales don’t get second they could still get through with a third-place finish.

Joe Rodon

Another definite starter for the Welsh national team is Rodon. Given his limited game time at Tottenham, the Euros should be a great place to prove himself and impress a manager that will soon be taking over Spurs.

If Wales want any chance of getting through to the round of 16, Rodon will have to perform exceptionally.

Toby Alderweireld

Alderweireld will be looking forward to the Euros this year as he will re-form his brilliant defensive partnership with Jan Vertongen once again.

Since debuting for Belgium in 2009, Alderweireld has made 107 appearances with them. He has been consistent throughout those 12 years and is currently in decent form.

He won’t perform incredibly at the Euros but will still be adequate, especially since he has another centre-back to rely on which he usually doesn’t at Spurs.

The Red Devils have a rather unchallenging group. They will finish first with ease and then go on to reach the quarter-finals at least, in my opinion. There is a possibility they could even go all the way and win it.

Pierre-Emile Højbjerg

In Group B along with Belgium are Denmark. Differing from other years, the Tottenham player representing Denmark is Hojbjerg.

He has been solid and reliable for Tottenham this season, playing every single minute of the Premier League season.

Hojbjerg began incredibly and ended strong when many fans doubted his ability. He will be one of Denmark’s best players in the competition. I think the best outcome Denmark can have is reaching the quarter-finals.

Moussa Sissoko

The other Tottenham player in the French squad is Sissoko. He occasionally starts for France but is usually on the substitutes bench. Sissoko won’t play a big role for France but he will end up helping late on in the game after getting subbed on.

Harry Kane

Without a doubt, Kane is one of the world’s greatest players right now. After getting both the playmaker of the season award and the golden boot, he will be looking to perform spectacularly at the Euros.

I expect Kane will be sublime for England, even being in contention for receiving another golden boot, also causing his value to increase if he chooses to leave Tottenham this summer.

England have such a young squad that it’s not the end of the world if they don’t succeed. However, I believe they could finally live up to people’s expectations.

They will get through the group stages with no trouble, only having a real competitor in Croatia. After that, they could get to the semi-final or the final depending on who they have to play on their way there.

Gareth Bale

It looks like Bale is on his way out of North London but his place in the Welsh national team is still easily there for him. Similar to previous years, Bale will be Wales’ star man with no one close to his level.

He got two goals in the last game of the season against Leicester so looks to be in from. On top of that, Bale has the second best minutes per goal in the Premier League season.
