Tottenham midfielder Alex Pritchard was thrilled to make his U20 World Cup debut in England's draw with Chile.

The tricky forward entered the action on 62 minutes with England trailing 1-0 against Chile in Antalya, Turkey.

Two minutes later, Harry Kane levelled the scores and the Spurs team-mates were then key players in England’s late push for a winner.

“It was my first call up and a proud moment to get out there and represent England,” he told the Spurs website.

“I didn’t play in the first game so to get on with us 1-0 down, for us to score so quickly and create chances after that was great.

“I had the chance with the header that maybe I should have scored but I was pleased to make an impact and I’ve got to keep going now and hopefully get on the pitch again.”
