The Spurs man looks like being a key player for Gareth Southgate in the European Championships this summer.

Tottenham academy graduate Tom Carroll has declared how much he is looking forward to England Under-21's summer, in an interview with the club's website.

The midfielder seems to have benefitted from his latest loan spell, a season at Premier League outfit Swansea City, and is looking like a more confident and capable attacking player in his post season appearances.

Carroll impressed in Tottenham's two games on tour, and scored in his second successive England Under-21 match, a closed doors friendly with Republic of Ireland on Friday that the Three Lions won 3-1.

The result left the 23-year-old excited at the upcoming European Championships in Czech Republic.

“I’m really looking forward to it and I think we’ve got a good chance," he said. "We’ve played some big teams, the likes of Portugal and Germany, and got results.

“Obviously they were only friendlies and now we’ve got the competition where it really matters but having those games and winning shows what we’re capable of.

“When you get to the finals stage of a tournament like this you know you are going to come up against top teams and top players but I think we can say the same, so that gives us a good chance.”

Carroll is one of three Spurs players in Gareth Southgate's squad, with Alex Pritchard and Harry Kane the other men involved, and the country will need all three to be on form if they are to have any hope of success.
