Dilan Markanday excited by Spurs Euro involvement

Dilan Markanday was buzzing after making the matchday squad for Tottenham's Europa League win against Wolfsberger.

Markanday, 19, picked up his first experience of being in a first team matchday squad with a place among the substitutes.

“It was an incredible experience being on the bench for the first team for the first time, especially in the Europa League – such a big stage," he told the club's website.

“It was amazing to be out here, to be part of the group – it's just a shame there were no fans here as that would have been really special.

"The intensity and quality is so high here in the first team – the communication, everyone is talking, the professionalism on and off the pitch as well… you see the way they eat and the way they prepare for the games in the changing room. It was really eye-opening and a great experience for me."
