Four Spurs players set for internationals

MAY 30

RAFA VAN DER VAART - NETHERLANDS VS SLOVAKIA

After a surprise loss at home to Bulgaria, the Netherlands will be looking to get back to winning ways in Rotterdam against Slovakia. The Dutch are one of the favourites to win Euro 2012, but have won only one of their past five matches.

HARRY KANE - ENGLAND U19s VS SWITZERLAND

England U19s are in the process of attempting to qualify for the European Championship Finals in Estonia this July, and only a win will be enough to guarantee progress to the tournament. Harry has played a part in both of the previous group stage fixtures against Slovenia and Montenegro, and the striker could play a big role in securing England's progress.

MAY 31

SANDRO - USA VS BRAZIL

Our midfielder started against Denmark in Brazil's 3-1 victory last week, and with Brazil hosting the World Cup in 2014, Sandro's team will not play a competitive match again until the opening fixture of the tournament. Matches such as this, taking place in Maryland, could be crucial in terms of keeping the team sharp.

GIOVANI DOS SANTOS - MEXICO VS BOSNIA

Gio is an ever-present in the Mexican team, and started the 2-0 win over Wales on Sunday. Mexico begin their World Cup qualifying campaign in just over a week, so this fixture will play a key role in preparing the team for the vital matches ahead.
