Rio Ferdinand has lauded England’s Tottenham quartet in the wake of the national team’s memorable comeback win over Germany.
Roy Hodgson’s side, which included Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Eric Dier and Danny Rose, came from two goals down to beat the world champions 3-2 in a thriller in Berlin on Saturday night.
Kane paved the way for England’s comeback at the hour mark when he produced a neat Cruyff turn inside the box on the right channel and then banged the finish into the bottom corner of the net.
An equally outrageous goal from substitute Jamie Vardy levelled the scores after 74 minutes before Kane’s Spurs team-mate Eric Dier capped a memorable fightback with a bullet header in the last minute.
Former England international Ferdinand, who won 81 caps, was particularly impressed by the contributions of Kane, Dier and Alli, and the promise they offer for the future.
Dier… Ali… Kane.. Promising core for the future! Impressive display by #England this evening ??

The youthful Spurs quartet started the clash in Berlin as they provided further proof of the progress of Mauricio Pochettino’s young guns this season.
Kane scored his fourth international goal in nine appearances, Alli shone in the No10 role, Rose produced a solid display at left-back and matchwinner Dier was effective at both ends of the pitch.
