International round up: Tottenham

How the Spurs players got on in their second game of the international break.

A total of nine Tottenham players were on duty for their countries over the weekend, to mixed effect. To read how they all got on in their first game, click here.

Richarlison had another difficult evening, seeing two goals ruled out for offside as Brazil edged past Peru. He later revealed that he would be seeking professional help ‘to work on my mind’ in a bid to return to goalscoring form with Spurs.

Cristian Romero had a better time of it though, playing 90 minutes and keeping a clean sheet as they picked up a 3-0 win over Bolivia, continuing their 100% start to their World Cup 2026 qualifying campaign.

Manor Solomon played 90 minutes for Israel as they made it 2 wins from 2 over the international break, courtesy of a 1-0 win over Belarus.

Yves Bissouma played 45 minutes for Mali before the game was abandoned at halftime due to heavy flooding.

Ivan Perisic played 90 minutes for Croatia as they edged past Armenia 1-0 to move top of their EURO qualification group. In another strong performance, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg scored the only goal for his side as they managed a 1-0 win away to Finland to bolster their own chances of qualifying for next summer’s tournament.

Elsewhere, Dejan Kulisevski grabbed an assist but couldn’t manage to stop his side from falling to a 3-1 defeat to Austria, a result that leaves them unlikely to qualify for Euro2024 next summer.

Wales finally picked up a win and both Brennan Johnson and Ben Davies played a big role in this, with the former playing 87 minutes and Davies managing to play the whole game.

Micky Van de Ven was once again an unused substitute for the Netherlands as they beat the Republic of Ireland 2-1, while Guglielmo Vicario was also overlooked for Italy’s 2-1 win over Ukraine.

Summer signing James Maddison was also left on the bench for England’s 3-1 win over Scotland at Hampden Park.
