Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal had a combined total of 21 players selected for their respective nations this summer at the World Cup.

The North London duo even had one winner between them, as France clinched the international trophy for just the second time in their history.

Here is a look at how players from Tottenham and Arsenal rated at the World Cup:


Toby Alderweireld (Belgium) - 7/10

His Spurs future may be up in the air right now, but he was a key part of his nation’s defence this summer and reminded people of what a quality centre-back he is.

Jan Vertonghen (Belgium) - 7/10

He was one of three Spurs players in the Belgium ranks and was an ever-present as his country ended up finishing third in the World Cup. He is a left-footed defender that slots into a back three perfectly.

Mousa Dembele (Belgium) - 6/10

The midfield powerhouse didn’t quite have the tournament many expected and wasn’t always a starter, but showed his quality in patches when he featured.

Davinson Sanchez (Colombia) - 7/10

He may have been on the losing side to England in a knockout match, but the centre-back did his reputation no harm this summer and is a youngster that has humungous potential.

Christian Eriksen (Denmark) - 7/10

The attacking midfielder was the talisman for his nation and they were only eliminated by eventual finalists Croatia on penalties. He scored one and assisted another during the group stages.

Danny Rose (England) - 6/10

He was one of five representatives in Gareth Southgate’s squad and did a solid job when coming in for Ashley Young at left wing-back.

Eric Dier (England) - 6/10

Was the understudy to Jordan Henderson throughout the tournament, but played some important roles off the bench and even scored the winning penalty that dumped out Colombia.

Dele Alli (England) - 7/10

He didn’t quite showcase his true talent, but still scored in a quarter-final against Sweden and his work-rate was a vital part of Gareth Southgate’s side.

Harry Kane (England) - 9/10

Again wasn’t at his brilliant best, but walked away with the Golden ball for his six goals and looks like being England captain for the next decade.

Kieran Trippier (England) - 9/10

The right wing-back took his game to a new level this summer on the international stage and was a brilliant creative force on the flank.

Hugo Lloris (France) - 8/10

The goalkeeper lifted the World Cup for France on Sunday, but his tournament was a mixed bag of great saves and high-profile errors.

Heung-Min Son (South Korea) - 7/10

The attacker scored twice during the group stages and his nation played some attractive football at the World Cup.

Danny Welbeck (England) - N/A

He was the third-choice striker and apart from 11 minutes against Belgium he watched on from the sidelines.

Joel Campbell (Costa Rica) - 6/10

The attacker is remarkably still on the books at the Emirates Stadium and fans will have seen him have a moderate World Cup, but the speed machine did grab an assist in one game.

Mesut Ozil (Germany) - 4/10

The creative midfielder was part of a Germany squad that clearly underperformed when they were knocked out of the group stages. On an individual note he was dropped from the side against Sweden and was unable to hit top form.

Mohamed Elneny (Egypt) - 6/10

He looked tidy in the midfield without setting the world alight and it will be interesting to see where he features in the plans of new manager Unai Emery next season.

Alex Iwobi (Nigeria) - 5/10

The attacker looked like he could play a big role for Nigeria during the friendly matches prior to the World Cup, but it didn't quite come together for him on the big stage.

David Ospina (Colombia) - 7/10

The shot-stopper kept two clean sheets in the group stages and also played his part in the knockout round against England, but it just wasn't meant to be for him.

Nacho Monreal (Spain) - N/A

Failed to make an appearance as a talented Spain bowed out of the last 16 against hosts Russia on penalties.

Stephan Lichtsteiner (Switzerland) - 6/10

One of Arsenal's new summer signings and the experienced right-back proved he is a wise head in the Switzerland side. Should be a strong mentor for Hector Bellerin at the Gunners.

Granit Xhaka (Switzerland) - 6/10

The deep-lying playmaker looked strong at times for his country and kept some good possession, but you are always left wanting more when you watch his performances.
