Toby Alderweireld thinks that Tottenham Hotspur can be proud of how many of their players have turned out at the 2018 World Cup.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld has claimed that the club can be proud of how many of their players have turned out at the 2018 World Cup.

The 29-year-old centre-back, alongside Jan Vertonghen and Mousa Dembele, was part of the Belgium squad that finished third in Russia.

England stars Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Kieran Trippier, Eric Dier and Danny Rose also reached the semi-finals, while Hugo Lloris has reached the World Cup final with France.

Christian Eriksen, Davinson Sanchez and Son Heung-min also made their own contributions at the tournament for Denmark, Colombia and South Korea respectively.

"It is something for the club and the fans to be proud of, you can see that for the past few seasons," Alderweireld told reporters after Belgium's 2-0 win over England.

"Of course everybody will say you didn't win anything yet but our level every season is top four and we are extremely consistent.

"You can see at this World Cup. The players are at a good level and being decisive players for their countries. Spurs are going the right way."

Spurs begin their Premier League season with a trip to Newcastle United on August 11.
