Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp was pleased for Aaron Lennon after his England performances this week.

"I've always encouraged him and told us to give him the ball," Redknapp said. "He can tear people to pieces if he gets on the ball. It doesn't do you any harm to hear that kind of thing.

"His confidence is sky-high and he has given Patrice Evra tough times twice last year - not many people do that to Patrice Evra.

"He's a terrific young talent, he's learning the game and if he keeps his mind open and keeps working hard on different aspects of his game, he can be a top, top player."
