6 Spurs players to miss the start of next season

Tottenham look set to be without leading goalscorer Harry Kane and Erik Lamela for the start of next season.

The poster boy of Tottenham Hotspur and the player all the fans want to see in Malaysia and Australia is Harry Kane. He of course didn't disappoint when scoring both goals in Spurs 2-1. After the Sydney FC game which will no doubt see him play 45 minutes on Saturday, he will have a short break before teaming up with the England Under-21 squad for the European Championships in the Czech Republic from the 15th to the 30th of June.

He will then need another break before he begins pre-season training and like players returning from the World Cup last season will be eased back into action.

Tom Carroll, Alex Pritchard and Eric Dier will be in the same boat, all also with the England Under-21's.

They will be joined by Erik Lamela who has been selected by Argentina for the 12 team Copa America tournament which takes place in Chile from 11 June to 4 July. He will also need a holiday before beginning training so will be a month behind the main part of the squad.

DeAndre Yedlin is in the USA squad for their next game and they have four matches in July. The MNT (Mens National Team) as they call themselves play Guatemala on July 3rd in Nashville, Texas, Honduras on the 7th in Frisco, Texas, Haiti on the 10th on Foxborough, Massachusetts and Panama on the 13th in Kansas City, Kansas.

If Yedlin is taking part in any of those he will also miss the start of the season although with Pochettino looking to sign Kieran Trippier from Burnley, it may well be that Yedlin has not impressed thus far. They are the whispers but in fairness to him it is a big step up to make from the MLS to the Premier League, it may well take time to progress him.

Pre-season training starts at the beginning of July so all six are not going to be ready for the start of the season, scheduled for 8th August. After having their holidays for a couple of weeks they will be behind in their fitness levels suggesting they will miss the start of next season.
