Danny boy is Englands' Rose

Danny boy is Englands' Rose

It seemed he couldn`t hit a barn door with a banjo from 2 yards during his short loan spell at Watford but Danny Rose certainly hit the big time last night for the England U19s.

Rose, who is earmarked to rejoin Watford on loan from Spurs for next season, netted the all important first goal with a classy little header as the Young Lions ran out 2-0 winners in their opening UEFA European Championship`s 'Elite Qualifying Group` clash with Bosnia.

The Spurs youngster was a bit hit and miss during his loan spell at Vicarage Road - scoring an own goal at Norwich, and missing sitters in front open goals against Southampton .

But, ol` Danny boy`s attacking display outshone the likes of Aston Villa`s Nathan Delfouneso and Palace`s Victor Moses at the Keepmoat Stadium in Doncaster as his footloose, fancy free footwork and set piece quality caused havoc.

Brendan Rodgers seems ever so keen to secure Rose on a season long deal for next season but if he keeps making this kind of impact on the international scene the we could be in for a scrap to get his signature.

Watford`s other loanee last season - Gavin Hoyte - was an unused substitute for England. Brendan Rodgers isn`t so eager to resign him.

Speaking to a well known x-spurs manager and he tells me that Rose is not that highly rated at white hart lane.

the fact that he was injured for the majority of last season would be unfair to claim he isnt highly rated, infact I hear the opposite. I think the short spell with you last season was always going to be hit and miss as the boy missed 8 mths football and at 18 is still a work in progress, if you do get him next season and I hear he is available, with you having the first option, he could be a great piece of business.
