Harry Redknapp expressed his delight at the form of our players on the international stage - especially Croatia reaching Euro 2012.

Luka Modric played in both play-off matches against Turkey as Croatia went through to next summer's finals 3-0 on aggregate.

However, all the damage was done in the first leg in Istanbul on Friday - where Vedran Corluka set-up the first goal and then scored the third in a 3-0 win.

Niko Kranjcar missed out through injury but all three Spurs team-mates will now travel to Poland/Ukraine next June.

"I was delighted to see Croatia qualify for the European Championships," said Harry.

"It is great for the lads, they deserved that and it will be another three players for Tottenham fans to watch in the Euro finals next year.

"Hopefully Younes can get in the French team and then we have got the English boys and Pav playing for Russia, so it will be a good summer."

There was further praise for Scott Parker and Kyle Walker, who completed a Spurs double by taking Man of the Match awards in England's friendly wins against Spain and Sweden respectively.

"Scott was great against Spain," added Harry. "It was a difficult game but we hung in there and took our chance when it came. Scott was massive in front of the back four.

"It was great to see Kyle make his debut and do so well. Hopefully he has got a big international future in front of him."
