Jack Clarke may have struggled for Leeds this season but his latest performance for his country will surely give him boost and confidence going forward.
The 18-year-old helped England’s Under-20 side beat Switzerland on Monday and many Tottenham Hotspur fans took to social networking site Twitter to shower praise on the youngster.
Spurs signed Clarke in the region of £10m this summer, but the north London club sent him on loan to Leeds United for the rest of the season.
The exciting winger broke into the first team at Leeds last season and dazzled at times in the Championship. However, he hasn’t been able to replicate his form upon returning on loan, and has been restricted to cup games only.
Clarke played for Keith Downing’s England Under-20 side, and got his name on the scoresheet as well. He scored a last-gasp winner, and as a result, it has left many Spurs fans heavily excited about their prospect.
Here are some of the selected tweets from the Spurs fans:
Scoring last minute winners, he’ll fit in perfectly 👏🏻

We’ll see him in January I reckon because of the lack of starts for Leeds, plenty of cup games he can play for us

Jack Clarke has barely kicked a ball for Leeds United this season, yet he’s still picked for the England team, and scored the winning goal for them today.
Clearly a very good talent that appears to be wasted on Leeds.
Tottenham should do their best to him back in January.

Clarke is an exciting young talent, but he should now concentrate on getting back into the first-team at Leeds. At this moment, Helder Costa, Jack Harrison and Pablo Hernandez are all ahead of him in the pecking order, but he should try to impress Marcelo Bielsa in every opportunity he gets.
