Danny Rose has spoken about the atmosphere in the England camp between the Liverpool and Tottenham players following the Champions League final between the two sides on June 1st.

Just four days after Liverpool’s 2-0 win over Tottenham in Madrid, the England squad were reunited ahead of their UEFA Nations League clash with Holland.

This meant that the four Spurs (Danny Rose, Dele Alli, Eric Dier, and Harry Kane) and three Liverpool players (Joe Gomez, Jordan Henderson and Trent Alexander-Arnold) who faced off in the Spanish capital were to be teammates.

After England’s penalty shoot out victory against Switzerland, Danny Rose revealed how it felt to link up with the Liverpool players who had been victorious in the final.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Rose shared his feelings on the situation: “You are reminded every day you lost and that was a unique experience for me,

“It’s not draining coming to play for your country,

“It is a bit draining having lost last weekend and having to share the camp with Liverpool players.

“I have never been through that myself. I was definitely tired from a long season with my club and having to come to England didn’t help.

“But as I said, whenever you’re selected for England it is a great occasion.”

Rose did, however, add that the Liverpool players had “been great”, stating: “I couldn’t have asked for them to have been much better than they have.”

Spurs Web Opinion

I’m a big fan of Danny Rose and I would love to see him stay at Spurs for the rest of his career. Not only do I think he’s good enough to start for us next season, but also, his passion is unmatched.

Having experienced players in the dressing room, such as Rose, who want to fight for the club is crucial to challenging for success in the foreseeable future.
