Redknapp unsure if England could match Tottenham style

Harry Redknapp is unsure if England's players can match his style at Tottenham.

Spurs played at almost breakneck speed to kill off Newcastle United, with Gareth Bale, Emmanuel Adebayor and Luka Modric all looking extremely menacing with their pace and creativity on the break.

Redknapp admits it will be a challenge to replicate Tottenham's playing style at international level if the FA come calling and he decides to take the job.

"There's a big difference in the pace we play at in the Premier League and with England, it's a slower game," Redknapp said.

"The opposition tend to keep the ball and play at a different pace.

"Our game in the Premier League is all about a high tempo, moving the ball quickly, as we did tonight, and playing with real tempo in your game."
