Some of the best international sides have been built on a core of players from one club and England manager Roy Hodgson certainly seems to have that in mind with his latest squad selection.
Hodgson called up five Spurs players for the games against Germany and Holland, with Kyle Walker, Danny Rose, Eric Dier, Dele Alli and Harry Kane all selected. Here’s how Twitter reacted to the news.

Roy on #THFC contingent: "They have handled their busy season very well and we are delighted to have the Spurs players involved."

Don't get me wrong I am happy Dier, Walker, Kane, Alli and especially Rose got called up but rather they get rested to not get injured #COYS

Roy has finally recognised the glory of Danny Rose. Made up for him.

Hodgson suggests Danny Rose may start against both Germany and Holland.

Looking forward to more photos of Danny being cross & unimpressed at England training.

What an achievement for @ericdier from Spurs reserve RB/CB last year to England holding midfielder this year. What a rise, well done Eric

Harry Kane is 3rd of all PL players for distance covered this season. Slightly worried he'll be knackered for the Euros.

Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy & Wayne Rooney will be a serious force

Andros Townsend plays more games @ NUFC and now doesn't get selected for England. That's strangely logical.
