He was then sidelined for three months after picking up a knee injury. - Last August Rose was finally handed his first-team debut for Tottenham against home-town club Doncaster in the League Cup. - Following loan spells at Peterborough and Watford, Rose returned to White Hart Lane and made his FA Cup debut against former club Leeds in January this year. - Rose has played for the England U17 and 18 teams and last year was called into the England U21 side's European Championships squad after Danny Welbeck was ruled out. - He went on to score his first international goal in a 2011 European Championship qualifier against Portugal at the end of last year. - The 19 year-old made his league debut against Arsenal and became an overnight hero after scoring 10 minutes into the match which Tottenham won 2-1 boosting their chances of a top-four finish.
