Joey Barton believes that the Tottenham Hotspur quartet who represented England last night did their chances of starting at EURO 2016 no harm.
Roy Hodgson named four Spurs players in his starting line-up to face Germany - with Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Danny Rose and Eric Dier all lining up for the Three Lions.
The four players have all been in wonderful form throughout the Premier League campaign this season, and they were sensational on the international stage, too.
Rose, making his first appearance for England, looked assured at left-back and managed to get forward regularly in the fixture.
Alli, meanwhile, continued to enhance his reputation, as he showed his creativity in the number 10 role.
It was Kane and Dier who stole the headlines, though, as the pair both got on the scoresheet as England came back from 2-0 down.
Kane turned sharply and finished well to score England’s first, before Dier headed home the winner in the last minute after Jamie Vardy had flicked in an equaliser.
And Barton believes that the Tottenham quartet all now have solid claims of starting England’s first match at EURO 2016, which comes against Russia on June 11th.
Thought Rose, Clyne, Dier, Alli and Kane all put solid markers down to start Euro's. The switch from 4231 to 442 diamond changed the game.— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) March 26, 2016
