Is uncapped Tottenham Hotspur star Danny Rose now England's number one left-back option?

The defender might be in with a shout for starting at Euro 2016.

It is a thought that not many an England fan would have envisaged a couple of years ago but is looking increasingly likely that Tottenham Hotspur players will dominate the England team for this summer's European Championships.

Harry Kane is a dead cert whilst Dele Alli, Eric Dier and Kyle Walker will also hope to be on their way to France. Ryan Mason will not discount himself either.

But could it be that the only one who is guaranteed a start in France is the last likely of all?

It is becoming evidently clear that England's best left-back option might in fact be Danny Rose at Spurs.

The defender has come on leaps and bounds this season. He has improved on his defensive frailty and is surely now on the cusp of England recognition.

Not only does he now look likely to be in the squad, but he must surely be considered as a potential starter.

Rose has been called up to England duty before but has not yet made his international debut - but at the moment he must be in with a shout.

Luke Shaw started the season as the England number one but the Manchester United left-back is out with a serious leg break. Leighton Baines was the obvious replacement. He has struggled with ankle trouble and since his return to action has struggled for form at Everton. Currently he is being kept out of the first-team by Bryan Oviedo. Meanwhile, at Arsenal, Kieran Gibbs is the back-up to Spanish star Nacho Monreal.

Other options are Ryan Bertrand and Aaron Cresswell of Southampton and West Ham respectively but Rose is currently starring at left-back for a team battling for the Premier League title.

It has come as a shock but Rose might very well be the best left-back option that England now have and must be considered a potential starter in France.
