England manager Gareth Southgate announced on Wednesday his squad for the upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against the Czech Republic and Montenegro.
West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice wins his first call-up for the country after declaring his international allegiance to England over the Republic of Ireland.
And Southgate has also included a total of five Spurs players in his selection.
Full-backs Danny Rose and Kieran Trippier, the latter of which scored the opening goal in the World Cup semi-final against Croatia in the summer, are both included, along with midfielders Eric Dier and Dele Alli and striker Harry Kane.
Spurs fans, however, are far from delighted with the national team manager’s selections.
Alli only returned from injury against Southampton last weekend, while Kane has rushed his way through his recovery from a ligament problem to make his comeback, but has appeared half-fit in recent games. Dier, too, missed four games prior to the encounter with the Saints.
And supporters are worried that some of the club’s key stars could pick up even more injuries as the club look to qualify for the Champions League by finishing in the top four.
Take a look at some of the best reaction below!
No injuries plz guys ?

Why is Dele back in, despite only returning from an injury? The fact that Trippoer is included says a lot about Southgates selections ?♂️

Really do wonder what discussions Spurs have with England when we allow Dele to go off with the squad having been injured for a month with his first game back last weekend. Surely we as a country have another midfielder that can play instead of him
