International A-Z

Exploring the vast number of countries our players have represented on a letter-by-letter basis. The series continues with letter ‘E’ and looks at individuals to have won between three and four caps for England while under contract with us.


During their careers, Johnny Brooks, Jimmy Dimmock, George Hunt, Tim Sherwood, Paul Stewart and Ian Walker all made three appearances for England as Spurs players.

Brooks (pictured, right) scored twice in his three games for England in 1956. He netted on his debut against Wales on November 14, 1956, and also got a goal against the former Yugoslavia on November 28, 1956. His final appearance for the Three Lions came against Denmark on December 5, 1956.

Club legend Dimmock appeared for England on three occasions, versus Scotland on April 9, 1921, and Wales and Belgium in 1926. He scored 112 goals in 438 matches for us between 1919 and 1931 and was part of our team that won the FA Cup in 1921, when he was aged just 20 years and 139 days. He scored the only goal of the game in the Final as we defeated Wolverhampton Wanderers to lift the silverware.

All three of Hunt’s England caps came while he was at Spurs. His debut came against Italy on March 13, 1933, and he scored in his second international against Scotland on April 1, 1933. His final appearance for the Three Lions was against Switzerland on May 20, 1933.
