Harry Winks caught the eye with his “old school” black boots – but he is actually a trend setter according to The Mirror.
The article states that our young midfielder Winks, who gave a Man of the Match performance against Lithuania on his senior England debut, got lots of praise on Twitter for the old school black boots he wore rather than the usual multi-coloured ones that many footballer wear nowadays
The article continues to say that Winks was given permission by adidas to wear a new range of boots which are not actually out until the end of November and in turn he became the first player in the world to wear the boots in a competitive game, so is already ahead in the football fashion stakes.
It continues saying that not just Winks boots impressed, England manager Gareth Southgate was more than impressed with the debutant’s performance.
“We haven’t scored the number of goals we would have liked to but we gave three full debuts and wanted to try something,” :the three lions boss said.
“A bit more quality in the final third is what was missing.”They had a packed defence, we were a fraction off. Running at people on that surface doesn’t work, we needed one-twos and quick passes.
The England boss went on to say:”Put today into context. We made seven changes, that inevitably means that you will be disjointed at times.”Harry Winks showed real calm, his use of the ball was excellent.
“Three at the back worked in some aspects but we are still open in counter-attack.”
