The defender has missed the opening of 2019/20 due to an injury issue, and therefore the international break could allow him to get valuable minutes under his belt as he looks to work his way back into contention with the north London outfit.
Although he is naturally suited to playing in central defence, it looks likely he will start at right-back against Germany, but that could be an advantage to him as it is currently a problem position for Spurs with both Serge Aurier and Kyle Walker-Peters coming under criticism from the fans for their performances. If he impresses he could persuade Mauricio Pochettino that he deserves the spot ahead of his teammates.
However, one fan is concerned that his return could cause his injury to recur, whilst others believe the youngster isn’t the answer to the right-back issue regardless of how well he may play tonight.
Here is some of the reaction from the Tottenham fanbase.
he is a bigger liability at rb than aurier

Perfect let them run the tests and hopefully it’s successful and he slots in RB for us ??needs game time after injury

Foyth not good enough to be right back! For me foyth is center back or defense midfielder..

Foyth is not the solution to our right back problem.
