Danny Rose topped off a week to remember with a superb curling effort for Spurs last night in a comprehensive victory in their Europa League play-off first leg tie against Georgian side Dinamo Tbilisi.

Before this the talented 23-year-old defender impressed in the North London's side victory over Crystal Palace on the opening weekend of the season.

Rose deserves his opportunity more than anyone to cement a regular first-team spot, after an outstanding loan spell at Sunderland last season, with the Black Cats thwarted in their attempts to sign the left-back on a permanent basis this summer.

Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas made it clear that Rose was in his first-team plans this season, and the latter has repaid his manager's faith in him so far this season. And there is no reason why Rose can't continue his rich vein of form.

Ever since notching his first Premier goal on his debut in April 2010 against arch-rivals Arsenal, there has been a sense of expectation and excitement surrounding the former Leeds United academy product.

Now is the time for Rose to make the left-back spot his own at White Hart Lane and if he does there is no reason why he can't stake a claim to be in Roy Hodgson's 23-man squad to travel to Brazil next summer.

He has gained the necessary experience and regular football at loan spells at the likes of Watford and Bristol City, and more recently with Sunderland.

Now is the time for Rose to deliver, and show to everyone in the Premier League that he is good enough to play for a top side like Tottenham.

Whether he can keep up his impressive form remains to be seen, but I for one hope he does. The more young talent that is able to come through is not only good for the Premier League but also for the England national team.

With talented young players like Danny Welbeck, Wilfried Zaha and Ross Barkley in addition to Rose, England could be strong challengers in a couple of years time at the European Championships in France.

After all it's about time England did win something, it's been quite a while hasn't it?
