The 58-year-old directly mentioned Eric Dier, Harry Kane, Danny Rose, Dele Alli, Kieran Trippier and Harry Winks as players the manager had positively affected.
In England’s last game, a friendly against Germany, three Tottenham players featured for Southgate’s side.
Dier actually got given the honour of captaining the side against Germany, making him the fifth youngest post-war skipper of England.
Dier’s teammate Kane, who missed the game through injury, was the captain for England’s last outing against Lithuania.
The international friendly between Germany and England provided no winner, with the game ending goalless.
Spurs currently find themselves third in the Premier League with 23 points from the 11 games played.
This means that Pochettino’s side are currently eight points off league leaders Manchester City, who are to yet to taste defeat in the league this season.
After the international break, Tottenham return to league action to face bitter rivals Arsenal in the north London Derby on November 18.
Arsenal are situated four points behind Spurs in sixth place ahead of the two sides meeting.
