Tottenham Hotspur hold a surprising England international record

LONDON, ENGLAND - MARCH 27:  Harry Kane of England celebrates after scoring on his debut during the EURO 2016 Qualifier match between England and Lithuania at Wembley Stadium on March 27, 2015 in London, England.

The good folks at MyFootballFacts.com have calculated a list of clubs that have had players score for England. Unsurprisingly, Manchester Untied top the list, but second place is the most striking inclusion.

That’s right. Since 1872, Tottenham Hotspur players have contributed the 2nd highest amount of goals (197) for England whilst on international duty.

Spurs are in front of Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester City and Chelsea in the list, by quite a staggering amount.

The latest White Hart Lane star to score for Roy Hodgson’s squad was of course Harry Kane, in the 2-0 victory over Switzerland at Wembley in September.

Kane, who has now scored three goals in four appearances for his country, is included in the squad for upcoming internationals.

Spurs team-mates Kyle Walker, Andros Townsend and debutant Dele Alli are also in the squad to face Lithuania and Estonia in Euro 2016 qualifiers.
