Trippier Ready To Take Next Step

Trippier Ready To Take Next Step

Tottenham defender Kieran Trippier wants to build on his outstanding World Cup and take his game to the next level with Spurs. Trippier, playing at right wing-back, was arguably England’s player of the tournament as Gareth Southgate’s men made it to the semi-finals in Russia before bowing out to Croatia.

It was against the Croatians that Trippier put the Three Lions ahead with a brilliant free-kick and he picked up for Spurs where he left off with another fine strike against Fulham.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side were labouring towards a 1-1 draw until Trippier, in his first game since the semi-final, sent a curling effort over the wall and into the corner, with Harry Kane then going on to seal the points in a 3-1 win.

That goal was just part of a fine display on the right and the 27-year-old is hoping to put his impressive summer to good use.

“I was delighted to play at the World Cup, it’s crazy what a year can do because I only made my debut for England last year and a year later I am playing in a World Cup,” he said.

“I learnt a lot about myself, it gave me a lot of confidence and I am happy to come back with more experience. Hopefully I can put that to good use by playing as many games as I can for Tottenham this season and helping the team out.”
