The Spurs-owned midfielder scored the only goal of the game as the Young Lions claimed a 1-0 win over the Czech Republic on Friday night in Prague.

A second-half goal from captain Tom Carroll saw England Under-21s beat Czech Republic 1-0 in Prague as Gareth Southgate’s side continued their preparations for this summer’s European Championships.

The Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, who is on a season-long loan at Swansea, struck just two minutes after the break when Czech goalkeeper Jiri Pavlenka spilled Calum Chambers’ cross, slotting home to put the visitors in front.

He was forced off five minutes later, however, after picking up a knock when scoring, as the Young Lions held on against the coming tournament’s hosts to seal their 12th win in 13 games.

It was nevertheless an impressive performance from the Spurs-owned skipper, who, despite his clear promise, has struggled to hold down a regular place in the Swansea side this season, making eight starts in 13 Premier League appearances.

Still just 22, though, there remains a good chance that he could push himself into Mauricio Pochettino’s plans upon returning to White Hart Lane in the summer, given the Argentine’s trust in youth, with a potential midfield place up for grabs should the likes of Paulinho and Etienne Capoue depart.

On a night of Spurs success, as fellow academy graduate Harry Kane scored just 80 seconds into his senior England, debut, here’s how their Twitter-based supporters reacted to Carroll's match-winning outing.
