Ginola hails impact of Spurs rookie Bentaleb

Tottenham hero David Ginola is a big fan of midfielder Nabil Bentaleb.

Tim Sherwood took a big gamble by handing Bentaleb his Tottenham debut in December and the teenager has barely put a foot wrong since.

"I think Didier Deschamps already knows about Nabil and what he is capable of doing," said Ginola, who was speaking at an event to promote the Budweiser Open Trials at Wembley.

"Will it be enough for him to be in the World Cup squad? I don't know. He would have to end the season with Spurs quite well, scoring some goals and being as good as he was in the past few games, but why not? He will get a chance anyway. If it's not in the World Cup, it could be Euro 2016 in France."
