England Looking Strong in Montaigu

England Under 16s have celebrated wins over Uruguay and UAE in the current Montaigu Tournament.

Their first victory came on Wednesday against Uruguay as the Young Lions won by a convincing five goal margin without reply.

Kenny Swain’s side had a dream start as Southampton defender Luke Shaw put them ahead in the first minute.

Jordan Houghton and Devante Cole both grabbed a goal to make it 3-0 with only 11 minutes past.

England remained quiet for the rest of the half but Callum Robinson added a fourth early in the second half.

David Moli came off the bench to score the final goal and give England a hugely convincing opening day victory.

England would play the next day against UAE but showed no signs of fatigue as they put three goals past their middle eastern counterparts.

Reece Mitchell put England ahead in the 9th minute but UAE were able to equalise not long afterwards.

Captain Jordan Houghton scored his second and third goals of the tournament as he put the Young Lions 3-1 ahead.

UAE were able to grab one goal back but it wasn’t enough to salvage any points.

England only need to draw on Saturday against Guinea to reach the final.

Portugal or France look the likely opponents so far as they top their group with two wins each.
