Danny Rose is set to start for England for the second time in four days in Tuesday night’s clash against Holland, Football Insider sources understand.
The Spurs man is in line to be named in the starting X1 for the friendly at Wembley even though Roy Hodgson is set to change virtually the entire team that beat Germany 3-2 on Saturday.
Rose, 25, is the only specialist left-back in Hodgson’s squad after Ryan Bertrand pulled out due to injury and Kieran Gibbs could not answer the call to replace him because he had jetted off on holiday to America.
Rose, who only made his debut on Saturday, is now in pole position to make England’s Euro 2016 squad.
He was one of four Tottenham players in the team that started against Germany, with Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Eric Dier also in the side.
Kane started England’s comeback with a superbly-taken goal and Dier clinched a memorable victory with an injury-time header.
Kane, Alli and Dier are likely to be on the substitute’s bench against Holland as Hodgson rings the changes, with a fifth Spurs player, Kyle Walker, expected to get the nod to replace first-choice Nathaniel Clyne at right-back.
