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.
