How Mauricio Pochettino has a big job managing Tottenham's England contingent following Euro disappointment

With plenty of Spurs players making up the England side, and after a poor ending to the Premier League season, some good management from Mauricio Pochettino will be required.

For Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Danny Rose, Eric Dier and Kyle Walker, England's embarrassing exit at the hands of Iceland only adds to a wretched spell in their football careers. 

It must be said they were part of a Tottenham side that enjoyed a very good season in the Premier League by finishing third and qualifying for the Champions League - but after being in the title race when the side's form slumped towards the end of the campaign as they finished third in a two-horse race, followed by this disappointment at international level - as human beings one would imagine they are feeling pretty low about now having formed a large chunk of this side.

Kane looked lost when trying to lead the line for England and was poorly managed by Roy Hodgson. A forward who has enjoyed rich goalscoring form over the past couple of seasons was made to look a shadow of himself during the Three Lions' time in France.

Dele Alli looked like a long season had finally caught up with him at the highest level which is understandable for a 20-year-old. Dier and Walker emerged with some credit while there has been much said about Rose's performance. 

It can feel like something of a trauma for the players involved - having done so well for so long and then finish the league season as they did, and go out in the manner they did at international level that Mauricio Pochettino has a big job picking these players up when they return to the club for pre-season training.

There could be the opposite effect from elsewhere, of course. Belgium are in the quarter-finals and could fancy their chances of going all the way - another side with a strong Tottenham contingent. Hugh Llloris is currently captaining France and stands a chance of lifting the trophy for the host nation. There could be many contrasting emotions when they're all back together as a group - and it could take some getting over. 

The real clue as to whether they've managed to put some disappointments behind them is when they start the new season with a tricky start to the season seeing them face Everton, Crystal Palace and Liverpool in August. A good start could banish any disappointments a little. But the five men who represented England in France from Tottenham are a huge part of the side, and will be needed at their best next season. Getting the best out of them from the word go could be a challenge for Tottenham next season.
