Video: Brilliant First Touch Sets up Harry Winks for His First England Goal

Harry Winks conjured up a really classy first touch earlier tonight to help him coolly score his first competitive goal for England.

The Spurs midfielder has become a key player for the Three Lions under Gareth Southgate recently, and the 23-year-old’s importance to the team was underlined as he was handed the coveted No10 jersey for this evening’s Euro 2020 qualifier away to Kosovo.

England were given something of a scare by Kosovo when they two nations faced each other in Southampton back in September, with Southgate’s men eventually triumphing 5-3 on the night.

But England looked a lot more solid in the opening stages of this match, with Winks delivering a really silky slice of magic to unlock the home defence on 32 minutes:

It might not be the most mind-blowing goal you’ll ever see, but the first touch is really something to be admired, eh?

What do you think of Winks’s growing influence on the England team, and would he be an automatic starter if you were in Southgate’s shoes?
