Tottenham Hotspur’s stars have been away on international duty this week, with Harry Kane leading England to a 7-0 home win against Montenegro then a 4-0 away win versus Kosovo.

However, while everyone is well used to Kane getting his name on the scoresheet, often multiple times, it was a different Harry who opened the scoring in Kosovo.

Harry Winks started his second match in a row under Gareth Southgate, playing in the number 10 shirt in a slightly more advanced role than we are used to seeing him.

Winks was even able to make the odd late dart into the box, latching onto an Oxlade-Chamberlain pass in the first half to open the scoring with a neat finish.

The Spurs academy graduate played alongside West Ham’s Declan Rice in the centre of midfield, the first time the two have played together for their country.

Despite coming from rival clubs, Rice had plenty of nice words to say about is England mate.

He said (Standard): “A lot of people of the outside see it as competition but I’m really good friends with Harry Winks and when he plays I’m happy for him.

“I played with him for the first time last night and we were speaking afterwards saying how much we enjoyed it. We were both want to keep the ball, keep it simple. To play with him last night and form that connection was good. It’s healthy.”
