Video: Onomah scores debut goal for England U-21's

2:30 pm
Highly-rated Tottenham Hotspur youngster Josh Onomah was called up into the Under-21 squad by interim manager Andy Boothroyd, currently deputising for Gareth Southgate.

In the second of the internationals during the international break from premier League action he was handed his debut. Onomah celebrated by bagging a goal himself as England recorded another comfortable win.

The 19-year-old (20 next April) attacking midfielder scored his debut for Spurs 3 weeks ago in the League Cup against Gillingham at White Hart Lane. It has been quite a period for him.

Harry Kane & the U21 boys begin vs Portugal tonight -- Berahino Out

4:30 pm
The 2015 UEFA European Under-21 Championship starts for England tonight when all Spurs fans can watch the exploits of Harry Kane, Tom Carroll and Alex Pritchard.

The tournament is the 20th staging of the UEFA European Under-21 Championship, a biennial football competition and on this occasion it is being staged in the Czech Republic.

England have appeared in the tournament 11 times before this one, in 1978, 1980, 1982, 1984, 1986, 1988, 2000, 2002, 2007, 2009, 2011 and 2013. The rest of the Europe take these tournaments seriously, sending their best teams but England unfortunately haven't and then we wonder why we are useless at tournament football at senior level.

Clubs have had a far too greater influence on their players playing in the past, Arsene Wenger has notoriously tried to stop his players being used, speaking out against them being included in squads and some it seems think Undre-21 football is beneath them if they have represented the senior side.

Once again it demonstrates the problem with football in their country and the poor mental attitude some players have. The Spurs boys want to be there, Kane has publicly stated he wanted to be there, even though he could have angled for a summer off.

Every player should want to play for his country, it's a disgrace that Jamie Carragher didn't want to and felt it got in the way of his club football. If your country want you, clubs should be powerless to do anything about it. I for one fully support our boys being there, even if it does mean Kane misses the start of the season with needing a rest.

You can cheer on Harry Kane and the boys on BT Sport in the UK, 7.45pm. At lasy some football to watch as a sensible hour.

BREAKING NEWS: Saido Berahino, the WBA striker has been ruled out of the entire Championships with a knee injury, Benik Afob├ę of Wolverhampton Wanderers has been brought in to replace him.

Tournament experience improves players

3:11 pm
Good to see plenty of Spurs representation in the England U21 squad for the European Championships. Other countries send their best players to the tournament, Germany did and then won the World Cup a few years later with half the team. Sitting on a bench for the senior team teaches them nothing about tournament play.

England players need to get tournament experience at international level, they freeze when it comes to a major tournament. England have to build as do Tottenham and players like Harry Kane will gain experience  playing against some top defenders with different styles of defending. That can only be benefocial, it's better than travelling to Brazil for a friendly and not even playing, protecting an Arsenal player was it?

Good luck to Gareth Southgate and the boys.

Dier looking forward to Croatia today

10:08 am
England U21's take on Croatia U21's tonight in the second leg of their European U21 Championship play-off tie.

Dier looking forward to Croatia today

Anyone who watched the first game will know Croatia were the better side and they'll be able to watch a layer we reportedly bid for last summer, Ante Rebic. He joined Fiorentina instead and was sent out on loan the the German second division to gain experience. He was the best player on the park in the first leg which England won 2-1, thanks to a Harry Kane header and a late penalty.

Eric Dier came on as a substitute at right-back in that game and is looking forward to the return leg in Croatia later today as he explains to the FA website.

“I think we’ve done everything the same as we did before in all of the other games which we’ve met up for. I think that’s good as we don’t want to add extra pressure. 
“They’re two really big games but we’re treating everything the same as we did last time we prepared. 
“It’s good playing all of these games now, but we do it to try and play in the tournament, which is the main thing. Any tournament is great for spirit, so going to the Under-21s Euros would be great for us.  
“You learn a lot in tournament football so to have that experience would be good for us.”

The first game was a good game to watch and from a Spurs point of view, in addition to Kane and Dier, Tom Carroll plays in the middle and Alex Pritchard is usually on the bench.

If you get the chance I'd urge you to watch the game. Kick-off is 5pm and the game is on BT Sport (UK).

Tottenham are represented with four players in the England U21 squad to take on Croatia over two legs in the UEFA Euro U21 Championship play-offs, although only two of them are at Tottenham at the moment.

This is an important game for England and quite rightly Luke Shaw has been demoted form the senior squad to join Gareth Southgate's U21 squad.

Eric Dier, Tom Carroll, Alex Pritchard and Harry Kane are the Spurs players involved with Carroll out on a season-long loan at Swansea and Pritchard on a similar deal at Brentford.

Jonathan Bond (Watford)

Patrick Bamford (Middlesbrough, on loan from Chelsea)
Saido Berahino (West Bromwich Albion)

Thier record is good to this stage as you would expect but we often let ourselves down when it comes to a major tournament because while other countries play their stars we tend not to and struggle.
