Forgotten Tottenham Hotspur newbie Kevin Wimmer praises Dele Alli and Eric Dier on Twitter

The Austrian international was pleased to see the England pair performing so well in midweek.

Tottenham Hotspur duo Eric Dier and Dele Alli have both had an exceptional week. The duo both received their first start for England and excelled against France.

Alli scored a fantastic goal and put in an all-round performance of aggression and guile whilst Dier looked at ease in the holding midfield role he has seemingly adopted this term.

Both players are, on current form, looking like definite names on the Euro 2016 squad list.

If they do make it to France next summer they will come up against several of their club colleagues playing with the likes of France, Belgium and Wales - as well as Austria. Although, you would be forgiven for forgetting that Kevin Wimmer is at Spurs.

But nonetheless this struggling Spurs star was overjoyed by the performances of his team-mates this week - posting this message on Twitter:

The Austrian international was picked up from FC Koln in Germany this summer but is currently firmly behind Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld in the Spurs pecking order.

In fact, he is not a regular for Austria. He has just two caps for his nation despite being a regular squad member. The likes of Aleksandar Dragovic, Sebastian Prodl and Martin Hinteregger are ahead of him in the queue.

Wimmer will now hope to get some game time under his belt for Tottenham so he can push on and become a regular for his nation ahead of the Euros next summer.
