"Fully deserved" - Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Mason's England call-up

Tottenham fans were largely delighted with Ryan Mason's call-up to the England squad.

After Liverpool playmaker Adam Lallana pulled out of the England squad to face Lithuania and Italy, Three Lions boss Roy Hodgson has handed a call-up to Tottenham midfielder Ryan Mason.

Mason, 23, could be in line to win his first ever England cap after a remarkable rise to prominence under Mauricio Pochettino this season.

The central midfielder had been little more than afterthought at White Hart Lane before this season, having been farmed out on loan to Yeovil Town, Doncaster Rovers, Millwall, Lorient and Swindon Town in recent seasons.

Mason hadn't even played a Premier League game for Spurs prior to Pochettino's appointment, but now the midfielder is a key cog in the Tottenham team.

It seemed like only a matter of time before Mason would earn an England call-up, and now joins Tottenham team mates Kyle Walker, Danny Rose, Andros Townsend and Harry Kane in the England squad for upcoming fixtures against Lithuania and Italy.

Tottenham fans took to Twitter after the announcement, and most of them were delighted to see yet another Spurs player named in Hodgson's squad.

However, some were slightly underwhelmed by England's decision to call-up Mason, whilst others were just praying that he didn't come back with an injury!

Here are some of the reactions from Spurs fans after Mason's call-up to the England squad...
