Tottenham full back Danny Rose has backed his club teammate Harry Winks to excel at international level, with the midfielder likely to be used by Three Lions' boss Gareth Southgate in the upcoming Nations League fixtures.
Whilst England reached the semi-final of the World Cup this summer - the furtherest the team has gone in the tournament since 1990, some critics argued that they lacked creativity in midfield as they were eventually undone by Croatia in Moscow.
Rose has claimed that his teammate Winks can assist with this, calling the 22-year-old 'different' to England's other options.
Speaking via the Evening Standard, the Spurs defender said: "[Harry] is different to all the other midfielders we've got for England. Once he is back to where he was last season, he has the ability to be fundamental for any team."
Rose also revealed that Tottenham's manager Mauricio Pochettino often calls Harry Winks 'the Little Iniesta' and he explained why.
He added: "
Harry Winks. Special talent. Just hope the boy can stay fit & healthy.— Noz Ahmed (@NozAhmed) October 6, 2018
