The World Cup semifinals are the pinnacle of international football, filled with star-studded teams from the world’s best countries.
Revealing the strength of Tottenham Hotspur’s squad, the club is superbly well-represented at the World Cup last four, with nine Spurs players still in Russia. This is currently more than any other club side in the world.
England boasts the biggest representation of Tottenham players, with Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Kieran Trippier, Eric Dier, and Danny Rose all featuring this tournament for the Three Lions.
Each and every one of the players have made a significant impact on England’s spellbinding run to the semifinals.
Harry Kane is the tournament’s runaway top scorer, Dele Alli secured the quarterfinal win against Sweden, Kieran Trippier has been excellent defensively and dangerous when delivering set pieces, Eric Dier bagged the winning penalty against Colombia, and Danny Rose’s short cameo in extra-time versus the South Americans almost won England the match.
Tottenham players have been tremendous in every department of the England set-up, clearly offering the biggest contribution to their national team out of any other club.
For Belgium, Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld have been rocks at the back for the Red Devils, leading their country to captivating wins over Japan and Brazil in the knockout rounds.
Midfielder Mousa Dembele also chipped in with an impressive performance during the final group stage match win over England.
Spurs’ lone representative in the French set-up, captain Hugo Lloris, most recently made a spectacular save against Uruguay to preserve a clean sheet in Les Bleus’ 2-0 quarterfinal win.
At any international tournament, supporters eagerly follow their club’s players and hope for success for their country. Given Tottenham’s huge presence in the semifinals, Spurs supporters should have no shortage of players to root for in the next week.
