Two of the star performers in Tottenham's 4-1 win over Manchester City were young central midfield pair Eric Dier and Dele Alli, and the duo would have certainly impressed England boss Roy Hodgson as he watched in the stands.
Television coverage showed the former Liverpool manager to be delighted as Harry Kane scored his first club goal of the season, and such is the stock of young English talent at White Hart Lane, the Mirror claim it is Hodgson's third Spurs game in a row that he has visited.
Though the emphatic win over league leaders City would have undoubtedly been the highlight in Hodgson's monitoring of Tottenham's English contingent, with Kane getting off the mark, Dier and Alli dominating the visitor's expensively assembled midfield, and Kyle Walker continuing his strong form this season, in truth, all three matches taken in that week will have done them good.
Dier was a good performer in Spurs' narrow North London derby defeat in midweek, and the two midfielders played a big part in last weekend's win over Crystal Palace.
However, despite England having already qualified for next summer's European Championships in France, the Mirror also suggest that Hodgson is unlikely to make too many changes for the final qualification matches against Estonia and Lithuania, meaning that Dier and Alli could remain in Gareth Southgate's England Under-21 squad.
Dier was earmarked as a senior figure in that group of players for the next couple of seasons, while Alli has only just won his first couple of caps, but such is his meteoric rise, he has already gone some way to proving himself in the top tier of English football.
Of course, Hodgson could yet spring a surprise, especially in central midfield where England are short right now, but a more realistic opportunity for the pair may end up being November's friendly with Spain.
