Promising Spurs trio Onomah, Winks and Walker-Peters make step up in England setup

Three Lions close

The trio of Tottenham teenagers are part of an impressive group of youngsters from the North London club involved in England youth duty.

Tottenham Hotspur received further endorsement of the good work they are doing at the club with their young footballers by seeing three teenagers on the cusp of the first team gain further recognition at England youth level.

Kyle Walker-Peters and Josh Onomah, who have both been involved in Mauricio Pochettino's sides during the summer, have moved up to the England Under-19s side managed by Aidy Boothroyd, having previously featured for the Under-18s.

Onomah in particular is touted as a top prospect at White Hart Lane, with the attacking midfielder on the bench during the draw against Leicester last weekend. He made his first-team debut earlier this year in an FA Cup tie with Burnley.

In the age group above that, midfielder Harry Winks has been selected for England Under-20s for the first time. With Pochettino said to be a big fan of the 19-year-old, Winks has been held back from possible loan spells in order to add to his solitary first-team appearance in last season's Europa League, and is expected to get more action in Europe and the domestic cups this season.

All three players have been retained in the England setup as they turn a year older, an indication of the trio's progress, and surely a pat on the back for Tottenham's impressive recent youth development, while there is good news in the other age groups too.

Starlet Marcus Edwards and goalkeeper Alfie Whiteman made the Under-18s, Jaden Brown, Keanan Bennetts and Shayon Harrison are in the Under-17 setup, while Eric Dier and Dele Alli are in Gareth Southgate's Under-21 squad.
