Victor Wanyama has proved to be a more than useful member of the Tottenham squad. The Kenyan midfielder has shown time and time again what he’s capable of and during the international break, he was at it again, bagging a penalty in his country’s 3-0 win over Ethiopia in an AFCON qualifier.

A lot of Tottenham fans will have been shocked to see Wanyama take the penalty for his country. He’s yet to take a spot-kick for his club but after seeing his composure from 12-yards for his country, a lot of them won’t mind seeing Wanyama step up in future matches. The key for Tottenham at the moment, though, will be getting Wanyama back to fitness as soon as possible after he limped off during the win earlier.
It’s likely that his injury is only a slight strain and with a bit of luck he’ll be back and available for selection before next Saturday’s trip to The London Stadium to face West Ham. The Lilywhites are going through something of an injury crisis at the moment with six first-team players out injured the last thing they all want is to see their commanding midfielder added to that list.
