'Oh my', 'that's insanity': Some fans hail Spurs ace's international display

Spurs midfielder Oliver Skipp delivered a good display for England Under-21s on Thursday evening.

The Tottenham ace played the full 90 minutes for the Young Lions in their European U21 Championship qualifier against Slovenia.

England began on the front foot and took the lead through Conor Gallagher after just five minutes in Celje.

Skipp played a huge part in the opener thanks to his superb run and pass, which set up Rhian Brewster.

The Sheffield United ace was shoved by David Zec, but the ball ran free for Gallagher to find the bottom corner from 12 yards.

Cole Palmer then scored in the 14th minute to put Lee Carsley’s side in control, but things went pear-shaped after the interval.

Mark Spanring netted in the 49th minute and Dusan Stojinovic completed the comeback on 66 minutes.

Whilst it was a disappointing result for England, Skipp did well for the most part.

Alongside cutting Slovenia open for England’s first goal, he imposed himself on midfield throughout the first half.

Although he tailed off somewhat in the second half, there was still a lot of praise coming his way.
