Alan Shearer raves about Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has coached 11 of England's last 19 debutants.

Alan Shearer has praised Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino’s influence on the England national team in his column for The Sun.

England started with four Tottenham players in their starting line-up during their 3-2 victory against Germany last Saturday.

Danny Rose, Eric Dier, Dele Alli and Harry Kane were all included in the Three Lions’ line-up, as they put in a highly encouraging performance at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin.

And Shearer has credited Pochettino for having a huge influence on England’s playing style, due to the job he has done at White Hart Lane.

“I never thought I would be giving thanks to someone in the Argentina side that knocked us out of France ’98 for what is happening with England now,” the Newcastle United legend said.

“But Mauricio Pochettino’s positive approach with Spurs is rubbing off on England with four of his players in Saturday’s side — Kane, Dele Alli, Eric Dier and Danny Rose.”

Dele Alli earned particular praise from Shearer, for his performance in the number 10 role for the Three Lions.

Alli was handed great responsibility to be in his country’s main creator, but he thrived with the added pressure.

And Shearer said: “Alli played like a 100-cap veteran. Or maybe it’s because he is new to it all that we saw this performance from the 19-year-old. One that possessed no fear, one that didn’t respect reputations.”

Pochettino has now coached 11 of the last 19 England players to make their debuts.

The Argentine boss has placed great faith in youth, and Spurs are now competing for the Premier League title, as a result.

Tottenham’s Kyle Walker has also been included in the latest England squad, and he could feature against Holland later this evening.
