Barca scouted starlet has the internet buzzing after shining vs Juve

CoShY__WcAA5UlUTottenham got a taste of the European football they will be enjoying this coming season, with a pre season friendly against Juventus this afternoon.

With both sides playing weakened teams, Juventus came out on top with goals from Paulo Dybala and new signing Mehdi Benatia.

Spurs pulled one back through Erik Lamela but at this stage it was performance rather than result that mattered and 2 of Mauricio Pochettino’s youngsters did their first team chances no harm with some impressive displays.

As seen last year, Pochettino has no qualms with giving youth a chance. He has very much bought into the mantra that if you’re good enough, you’re old enough and Marcus Edwards and Harry Winks may have just shown him that they are old enough.

17 year old attacking midfielder Edwards made his first team debut against Juve and showed why Spurs fans are so excited about him. Reportedly scouted by Barcelona, Edwards looks to have a bright future in the game even if it is away from White Hart Lane as the youngster is yet to sign a new deal.

Whilst 20 year old Winks will have forced the issue of more game time after a eye catching midfield display.

Here are some of the best tweets on the duo:
