The Millers get ready to host England under 19s...
The greatest moment of Harry Winks’ fledgling career came at the New York Stadium in April.
Trailing 1-0 to Germany in front of over 9,000 vociferous fans, England U18s coach Neil Dewsnip summoned the Tottenham midfielder from the bench – with dramatic consequences.
Blackburn Rovers’ Dean Rittenberg headed an equaliser just after the hour mark and Winks steered home the winner with just eight minutes remaining before running off to soak up the adulation from the South Yorkshire public.
Winks said: “That was by far the best moment of my career to date.
“For any player, scoring against Germany would be a big thing but to score a late winner was better than I could have imagined.
“The fans were brilliant that night. We had a big crowd there and they were constantly singing and chanting. In Under-21s football for our clubs we don’t really play in front of crowds like that so it was brilliant. To score the winner and see all those fans celebrate was quite surreal.
“A few of us who are in the U19s now played in that game and the fact we came from 1-0 to win just shows what we can do and shows that we’ve got a lot of character as well as quality.”
Winks is in the squad for the under 19s International against the Millers at New York Stadium this Friday, kick off 7.45pm.
