Which Countries are Set to be Represented by Spurs at Euro 2021?

The latest European Championship finals are now taking place in the summer of 2021, so which Tottenham players look set - injury permitting - to pull on international jerseys at the tournament?

These are the countries that should be represented by Spurs at Euro 2021:

England

It's an obvious place to start, but Harry Kane is England captain, and Gareth Southgate could end up selecting a few of his Three Lions Euros squad from Tottenham ranks. Harry Winks and Eric Dier have both earned caps under the current England boss in deep-lying midfield berths.

Dele Alli, who tends to be deployed slightly further forward than his Spurs clubmates, has also been part of the national setup, and will be hoping to win back a place. Left-sided duo Danny Rose (likely to leave now) and Ryan Sessegnon are more on the fringes of things, but there is time for either to come back into the picture.

Given the wealth of talent available to Three Lions boss Southgate, it's no surprise to see England 5/1 joint-favourites in the outright Euro 2021 football betting with bet365. Many Tottenham players were part of the national team's run to the semi-finals of the last World Cup, so much the same is expected of them.

France

Spurs skipper and number one Hugo Lloris is also captain of France and a World Cup winner. He is vital to organising Les Bleus' defence and has well over 100 international caps.

Joining Lloris in French ranks could be Moussa Sissoko, who missed his World Cup triumph but has since won his place back on Didier Deschamps' roster, and Tanguy Ndombele. The pair bring similar all-round qualities to midfield which allows some of Les Bleus' flair players to do their thing.

This current France squad are trying to emulate what a previous generation achieved in the late 1990s that culminated in following-up on World Cup glory with victory at Euro 2000. Les Bleus are 11/2 to be European champions again.

Belgium

While Jan Vertonghen is out of contract with Tottenham this summer, fellow Belgium international defender Toby Alderweireld could still be in North London come Euro 2021. It's a shame that unless the former re-signs with Spurs, this partnership for club and country is going to be broken up on a regular basis and we'll only see Vertonghen and Alderweireld together on international duty.

They have been part of a Golden Generation for Belgium which, like the England of the mid-2000s, hasn't lived up to the hype. Ex-Everton boss Roberto Martinez is looking to change that, however, and odds of 5/1 say he can steer the Belgians to European Championship glory.

Netherlands, Portugal and Wales

Tottenham's winter window signing Steven Bergwijn has broken into the Dutch national team on the wing in recent times. His transfer from PSV Eindhoven will see him test himself at a higher level every week, and the Netherlands are 7/1 chances to win Euro 2021.

Jose Mourinho also loaned in Portugal midfielder Gedson Fernandes for 18 months in January. Spurs also have the option of making the move permanent from Benfica, so he can stake his claim to join Cristiano Ronaldo at the Euro finals. Portugal are defending European champions, but are 16/1 shots to retain their title.

Finally, Wales defender Ben Davies is a regular for Ryan Giggs' Dragons. A repeat of their famous run to the semi-finals at Euro 2016 looks unlikely as the Welsh are 100/1 outsiders this time around.
