Eric Dier is back in the England squad and one of three Spurs players called-up for UEFA Nations League matches against Iceland and Denmark in early September.
Capped 40 times, the central defender last featured for the Three Lions in the inaugural UEFA Nations League third-place play-off final against Switzerland back in June, 2019.
Eric is joined by Harry Kane and Harry Winks, who both played in England's last matches in November, 2019 before the coronavirus pandemic forced lockdown in March.
Proud captain Harry already has the most goals for England as a Spurs player (32) and is just four short of Jermain Defoe's 49-cap haul. He's sixth in England's all-time goalscoring list, headed by Wayne Rooney (53).
Midfielder Winksy started and scored in England's last match, a 4-0 win against Kosovo in European qualifying in November. He has six caps.
England are in group A2 of the 2020/21 UEFA Nations League, with Belgium - FIFA's number-one-ranked international team - completing the quartet of sides playing each-other home and away over a three-month period. The group winner will join the other table-toppers from league A in the Nations League finals, scheduled for 2021.
England travel to face Iceland in Reykjavik on Saturday 5 September (5pm) and then head to Copenhagen to face Denmark (7.45pm) on Tuesday 8 September.
