Toby Alderweireld may well have struggled for Spurs this season, but he has performed well for Belgium in both international breaks.
The two Belgians have not had the best of starts for Tottenham this season, but they have clearly put all of their club worries behind them in their international performances.
Of course, not too much can be taken from the fact they have beaten the likes of San Marino and Scotland, but they have still played a massive role in a defence that has only conceded one goal.
It would be good for Spurs if these two could rediscover their club form as for a while, they were one of the best defensive partnerships in the league, but it seems off the field issues have led to a decline in their pairing this season.
Certainly, Alderweireld is enjoying playing for his country, and it would be great for Tottenham if he can rediscover that joy playing for them.
