England won its first-ever European Under-17 Championship on Sunday, defeating Spain by a 2-1 score line in Liechtenstein. A pair of our youth products, Josh McEachran and Nathaniel Chalobah, featured in significant roles.
“The whole team has done really well for the last two weeks," said McEachran, who was influential in the final and assisted on the Lions' opening goal. "The last England team to win a European trophy had Paul Scholes and Gary Neville and just look at what that team went on to achieve. Hopefully we can go on to do the same.”
Congratulation to our boys on a well-deserved title. You know, this is shaping up to be quite the summer for the youth academy.
An Under-19 side featuring youth and reserve team members captured the 2010 Gestion Copa Amsterdam just last week. The Blues defeated Sevilla 7-6 on penalty kicks in the competition's finale.
Well done to all our young ones.
