Tottenham boss Antonio Conte believes Ryan Sessegnon, Djed Spence and Oliver Skipp could all become senior England internationals if they continue their current rate of improvement.
“We signed [Ivan] Perisic but before he played a lot of games because I considered him a reliable player. Ryan for sure has had a big, big improvement in one year. Also, if you remember in the past he had many injuries. He has found a good stability and has improved a lot and in the future for sure he can become one of the players for the future England squad,” said the Spurs boss.
“Then it is up to him - to continue to work and continue to improve, to have this desire because now he is playing with the U21s with Spence and Skipp. For sure there is a possibility for them in the future if they continue to improve to make another step with the national team.”
Conte also spoke about Harry Kane and Eric Dier going to the World Cup with England: “I think Harry is going to play a fantastic World Cup because in this season he was never injured, he has been able to train well, he is good physically and for sure to play many games in such a short period is difficult – but not only for Harry,” he said.
“Eric Dier is another player going with the national team. To play 13 games in 43 days mentally you could be a bit tired, but top players have to be good to manage these situations.”
