Posted on 11 October 2017  - 12:15

We will already be well represented at next summer's World Cup finals in Russia - with two more players determined to add to our contingent next month.

Hugo Lloris, Moussa Sissoko and Davinson Sanchez were all part of celebrations as France and Colombia qualified directly for the finals on Tuesday night.

They join Heung-Min Son (South Korea), England (potentially six Spurs players), Belgium (Toby Alderweireld, Mousa Dembele, Jan Vertonghen) and Argentina (potentially Erik Lamela and Juan Foyth).

The full list of 22 countries to have qualified so far is Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, England, Egypt, France, Germany, Iceland, Iran, Japan, Mexico, Nigeria, Panama, Poland, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, South Korea, Spain and Uruguay.

Christian Eriksen and Serge Aurier will aim to join the party next month.

Christian's outstanding form inspired Denmark to reach the play-offs and they join Croatia, Greece, Italy, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Sweden and Switzerland in the draw on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Serge and the Ivory Coast face a make-or-break qualifying match against Morocco on November 11. The final section of African qualifying sees five groups of four teams play each other home and away with the five group winners progressing to Russia. As it stands, with one match remaining, Morocco top Group C by a point from Ivory Coast.
