It has been a mixed couple of weeks for Harry Winks, after he was dropped from the Tottenham squad against Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League, before being benched for the Premier League tie against Sheffield United.

Despite this, Winks was still called up to Gareth Southgate’s latest England squad, even starting both games for the Three Lions against Montenegro and Kosovo.

Winks played a holding midfield pivot role in the first match, which England won 7-0, with the Spurs man remaining deep and keeping the ball moving for the more attacking players.

However, against Kosovo Winks donned the number 10 shirt for his country and played a more attacking role himself, even opening the scoring with a well-worked goal.

Gareth Southgate was very impressed with the Spurs academy graduate in both games, while Winks will be hoping his international form will persuade Pochettino to recall him to the first team against West Ham.
