Tottenham’s summer signing Jack Clarke made his second appearance for the England U-20’s against Switzerland today after making his debut for the side a few days ago.
Clarke, who was Tottenham’s first summer signing, was loaned back the Championship club for the remainder of the season but has found playing time hard to come by for Marcelo Bielsa’s side.
Yet, on the evidence of the past few days, he seems to have no problem shining on the international stage.
The 18-year-old made a late run into the box in stoppage time and thumped home a firm header from substitute, Luke Bolton’s cross to give England all three points against a Switzerland side that defended bravely for most of the match.
Clarke then took to social media to reveal his delight at netting the winner.
Delighted with the win and to get the first goal for my country🦁 https://t.co/ZUAWpsZ51u

The England U-20s will now play Italy and Czech Republic in another doubleheader in October.

It does look like Bielsa isn’t too keen to play him given that he has no future at Leeds. If this situation is going to continue, Tottenham will be better off terminating the loan with Leeds and loaning him elsewhere instead. At 18 years of age, he needs to keep playing regularly to mature into a top player.
