Southgate - Trippier is one of the top 3 right-backs in the country

Spurs boss Pochettino turns yet another player into an England international


Kieran Trippier is probably the best crosser of a ball we have at full-back for Tottenham, followed by Eric Dier. While Dier is an England regular, Kieran Trippier has won a call up to the senior squad for the 2018 World Cup against Scotland in Glasgow on 10 June and the friendly international against France on 13 June at the Stade de France, Paris.

It is recognition of his form towards the end of the season when Kyle Walker was dropped and lost form due to hius head being elsewhere it seems.

England manager gareth Southgate spoke about leaving Wayne Rooney out, stressing than Dele Alli has been in fine form, that Defoe scored in his last game for England and that Herry Kane is coming back. Then moving on to Kieran Trippier he said that he liked his mentality and that he was onr of the three best right-backs in the country.

“He’s a player that I’ve watched a lot, from when he was at Burnley. He has had limited game time at Spurs but he fits the profile of a full-back that we like – he’s very good with the ball and I like his mentality. 
“He’s a player we wanted to bring in so he gets a feel for how we work, and it’s a good opportunity for us to look at him. 
“He and Kyle [Walker] will have been pushing each other every day and, in my opinion, they along with Nathaniel Clyne are the three best right-backs in the country.”

Mauricio Pochettino has turned another Spurs player into an international, he told Danny Rose he would play for England if he stayed at Spurs, now he has done the same thing with Trippier. Young English players must be looking at his record and saying to themselves, perhaps he could do that for me.
