Tottenham Hotspur fans react to Danny Rose inclusion in England squad

England Crowd

Tottenham fans react to Danny Rose's England call-up.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose has been handed an unexpected England call-up.

Ashley Cole's retirement, as well as injuries to Luke Shaw, Kieran Gibbs leaves the Three Lions short of back-up for Leighton Baines.

Rose had a poor season for Tottenham last season, and his call-up is surprising for those who have not seen him play this campaign, for the left-back has actually enjoyed a pretty good start.

Knowing his place is under pressure from new signing Ben Davies, Rose has upped his game as part of a Tottenham backline which has kept clean sheets against West Ham and QPR.

Whether the former under-21 international is capable of stepping it up against higher quality opposition remains to be seen, and England manager Roy Hodgson is at leas curious enough to take a look.

Rose is one of several new faces in the England squad, along with Jack Colback, Fabian Delph and Calum Chambers.

New Spurs signing Eric Dier, who has arguably out-performed Chambers, can be considered unlucky not to be included.

Here is a look at how fans reacted on Twitter to Rose's call-up...
