Harry Winks is set to be handed a start for England against Croatia in the UEFA Nations League on Friday night, according to the Mirror.

The midfielder has featured prominently for Tottenham in recent weeks following an injury to Mousa Dembele and now looks set to play a significant role for the Three Lions.

Winks was absent for the majority of last season with an ankle injury, and the post-surgery rehabilitation also saw the midfielder miss Spurs’ pre-season campaign.

But after impressing in recent matches against Huddersfield Town, Barcelona and Cardiff City, the 22-year-old received a call-up to the latest England squad for games against Croatia and Spain.

And according to the Mirror, Winks will be in the starting line-up against Croatia.

He could be joined by Tottenham teammates Kieran Trippier, Eric Dier and Harry Kane in the XI, but Danny Rose has returned to Spurs with a slight groin problem and Dele Alli missed out on the squad altogether because of a hamstring injury.

Hopefully Winks will make the most of his opportunity and become a regular on the international stage.
