Video: Tottenham’s Dane Scarlett scores an England hat-trick in 5-1 win

Dane Scarlett netted a hat-trick for England’s Under-20s in their 5-1 win against Poland on Friday.

Scarlett has had a difficult 18 months, having struggled to make the expected impact on loan at Portsmouth last season and failing to make a single start at Ipswich Town during the first half of this campaign.

Tottenham thus decided to recall the youngster in January and the fact that he has represented the Lilywhites in the Carabao Cup meant that he could not be loaned out again, with the rules not permitting players to play for three different English clubs in the same season.

The 19-year-old has featured just once as a late substitute since returning to Spurs, but Ange Postecoglou insisted earlier this month that the door is always open for the teenager to make it into the team if he impresses in training (Beanyman Sports).

Strikers need goals in order to feel confident and play at their best. Hopefully, this hattrick serves as a boost to the youngster and he impresses Postecoglou and his coaching staff on his return to Hotspur Way next week.
