It was a disappointing round of 16 for Spurs' players, with 3 of the 4 representatives out in Germany now on their way home.

On Saturday, Guglielmo Vicario's Italy lost 2-0 to Switzerland in a game they were utterly abysmal in and thoroughly deserved to lose. With a 35-year-old right-footed Darmian at Left-Back, it wouldn't be a stretch to say Italy missed out on the quality on and off the ball of the injured Destiny Udogie.

Later that evening, it became two Spurs players eliminated out of two as Pierre-Emile Højbjerg's Denmark side fell to a 2-0 defeat to hosts Germany at Signal Iduna Park.

The game was halted in the first half by a lightning strike, just as Denmark had wrestled back a foothold in the game. Further, and more fatal, bad luck was to come though - as defender Joachim Andersen had a goal ruled out for offside and then himself gave a penalty away all within a 2 or 3-minute spell. The penalty was converted, and Jamal Musiala was to seal the lead late on after a superb pass from Nico Schlotterbeck.

Højbjerg's performances this summer were generally pretty good and will have done no harm in granting the club and the player's wishes to move on this summer.

Finally, Radu Dragusin's Roma fell to a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Micky Van De Ven's Netherlands. One player was guaranteed to go through from the four competing in the round of 16, and it turned out to be Van De Ven. The Dutchman once again made an appearance off the bench, his third of the tournament, and once again came on for Nathan Ake.

The Spurs defender showed an incredible burst of speed to latch onto a ball late on, reminding everyone why he was clocked as the quickest player in the Premier League last season [Squawka]. Dragusin played the 90 minutes, looking impressive for large periods, although was spun by Cody Gakpo for the Netherlands' second goal.
