Another international break is already upon us, meaning a host of Tottenham Hotspur players will set off around the world with their respective national teams.
Kane is the sole Spurs man in the Three Lions’ squad for March’s friendlies with Switzerland and Ivory Coast, with Eric Dier snubbed by Gareth Southgate.
Ben Davies and Joe Rodon will fly the flag high for Wales as they face Austria in their World Cup 2022 Qualifying playoff. Hugo Lloris acts as the last line of defence for France double header against Ivory Coast and South Africa.
Lyon loanee Tanguy Ndombele has not earned a Bleus call-up this time around, but the rejuvenated Matt Doherty is set to meet Belgium and Lithuania with the Republic of Ireland.
Backup goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini will likely be on the bench as Italy meet North Macedonia in their World Cup playoff semi-final. Dejan Kulusevski’s Sweden face a crunch tie vying for Qatar’s ticket as they Czech Republic in semi-final.
Denmark’s Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and the Netherlands’ Steven Bergwijn could lock horns when their two nations meet for a friendly this weekend, while Son Heung-min will don the South Korea armband as his side lock horns with Iran and the United Arab Emirates in World Cup Qualifying.
Despite being banned, Cristian Romero has been controversially called up to the Argentina squad. Romero is one of three South American representatives in the Spurs ranks, with the Copa America champions facing Venezuela and Ecuador in CONMEBOL qualification.
Rodrigo Bentancur turns out for Uruguay while Davinson Sanchez’s Colombia aim to improve their dismal seventh-placed standing in the table.
Villarreal loanee Giovani Lo Celso is on the way to Argentina despite being suspended alongside Romero, while Metz’s Pape Sarr has been called up to the Senegal squad to face Egypt in their World Cup 2022 Qualifying playoff.
Troy Parrott – currently on loan at MK Dons – will join Doherty in the Irish ranks, but Ryan Sessegnon and Oliver Skipp’s injuries have prevented them from linking up with England’s Under-21s.

Conte has already been without a number of his key players so far this season and is still without some. The last thing the Italian will need is yet more injuries in the final couple of months of the season.
Cristian Romero was out for a good few months with the injury he picked up on the November international duty. Giovani Lo Celso also picked up an injury for Argentina during the same international break.
The Italian will be hoping all of his players can stay fit whilst on duty with their country as Spurs face Newcastle next in the Premier League.
