18-year-old Harry Winks continued his recent progress by netting the winner as England Under-18s came from behind to defeat their German counterparts 2-1.
The central midfielder had been a regular for the Tottenham Hotspur youth squad under boss Tim Sherwood – before the latter took over the first-team – and predominantly featured for the U18 team.
After progressing through the U18 team, Winks went on to feature in the Youth Cup and the NextGen series before finally making a few appearances for the U21 side.
His progress for the North Londoners didn’t stop there, as Tim Sherwood had enough belief in the youngster to name him in the match-day squad for their recent Europa League quarter-final clash against Benfica and also their crunching Premier League match away at Liverpool.
It has been quite an experience for the youngster, and his winner last night against the Germans would have been a personal highlight in his short career.
After neat play down the left, the ball was cut across and found Winks making a late burst into the box. From 10-yards out, his connection wasn’t clean but did enough to beat the German shot-stopper and ultimately delight the fans behind the goal.
