Harry Redknapp, the Tottenham manager, insists he will not let talk of him becoming the next England manager derail his attempts to get Spurs back into the Champions League.

When, in the run-up to tonight's Europa League game with Shamrock Rovers in Dublin, he was asked where he stood on the prospect of becoming national manager, Redknapp said: "Nowhere really. I just have a job to do here. I don't know what will happen at the end of the season. I don't look that far ahead. I have to keep focused on Tottenham. The only thing that enters my mind is getting them back in the Champions League."

Spurs have taken only 15 players to Dublin. Scott Parker, Luka Modric, Gareth Bale, Emmanuel Adebayor and Kyle Walker have been left in London. Roman Pavlyuchenko misses out with a back injury.
