Glenn Hoddle comments on Tottenham quartet's performances in England's dramatic win

Tottenham WHL

Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Eric Dier and Danny Rose all featured as Roy Hodgson's men beat Germany.

Glenn Hoddle has admitted that he was hugely impressed by the four Tottenham players who featured in England's sensational win over Germany on Saturday, the Daily Mail reports.

Roy Hodgson's men were 2-0 down on the hour-mark against the World champions, but goals from Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy and a stoppage-time winner from Eric Dier gave the visitors a fantastic victory.

And while Kane and Dier are likely to take many of the headlines, Spurs legend Hoddle was also quick to praise the other two players from Mauricio Pochettino's squad that featured in Berlin, Dele Alli and Danny Rose.

"With my Spurs connections, I'm obviously delighted to have seen four players from the club make a big contribution. Harry Kane and Eric Dier scored and Alli should have done with a late open goal, it was possibly the only thing he did wrong all night. Harry's Cruyff turn was poignant as well given the great man's passing last week," he wrote in the Mail.

"The fourth Tottenham player Danny Rose was as good as anybody. He was fantastic defensively and you know he can get forward."

The fact that Hodgson has almost built the core of his side around Spurs players highlights how impressive they have been in the Premier League this season.

The quartet have been instrumental in helping the club move themselves into title contention. Combined, they have made well over 100 appearances in the top flight this term, contributing 31 goals between them. 

And while it is Kane that has scored the majority of those goals, the fact that they have all contributed on that front arguably symbolises how each member of the squad has been an important piece of the jigsaw that Pochettino has put together, and now it appears that Hodgson has decided to use that successful model as the blueprint for the national side.
