Aaron Lennon and Jermain Defoe will be hoping to represent England come Euro 2012.
Scott Parker and Kyle Walker have been two of England's strongest performers in recent months. Parker in particular has highlighted his importance to the Three Lions' cause with an impeccably destructive performance in the 1-0 win at Spain.
Walker drew plaudits for a strong performance against Sweden in the next game and as of right now seems, along with Glenn Johnson, one of the preferred right-backs of manager Fabio Capello.
Now while Spurs fans are rightfully more concerned with what their players do at club level than country, it is certainly nice to see players representing the club in their respective nations.
Two who haven't been in the England squad recently are Jermain Defoe and Aaron Lennon. The former is especially surprising considering that he has been playing some of the best football of his career, a fact that should not be neglected despite him not starting every day.
Defoe has also been one of England's best strikers when given the chance, and was one of the few to return from the 2010 World Cup with any semblance of credit for his displays.
Lennon hasn't been as consistent for England, but that hasn't been helped by the absence of a decent run in the national side. While he has strong competitions on the wings with Theo Walcott, Ashley Young, Adam Johnson, James Milner and Stewart Downing all quality players, Lennon is at the very least the equal of these and probably better than most.
Aside from Milner none can perform as effectively in a 4-4-2 formation, should England revert to that. Lennon also has the added positive of his burgeoning relationship with Kyle Walker on the right side at Spurs. Not to mention his growing versatility in operating on the left and his increasing willingness to go looking for the ball.
