There’s been a lot of focus on Spurs players this week and in particular on Younes Kaboul and Kyle Walker who have been ruled out of their respective squads ahead of this summer’s European Championships through injury.
For both players the news would have been a bitter blow but a significant proportion of Tottenham fans are greeting the news as a ‘blessing in disguise’. It seems that some of us would rather have both Kyle and Younes fit and ready to go ahead of the next Premiership season rather than risk further damage at the Euros.
Meanwhile, Scott Parker has been selected in Roy Hodgson’s first England squad even though the manager himself acknowledges that the player is a doubt.
“Scott’s had an injection which will probably take a week for us to see if it’s been successful or not,” Hodgson said.
“He could still miss out, although from what I’m hearing, it won’t be a problem. He’s very confident.”
While still only 31, age isn’t necessarily on Scott’s side and if he misses out here he may not get selected again – a further reason why he will be desperate for fitness.
From what is currently being said it looks as if he will travel to Eastern Europe but as a Spurs fan, would you be happier if he stayed at home?
