England Under 16s Retain Victory Shield

john-peacock-thoughtfulEngland Under 16s have retained the Victory Shield for a twelfth successive time.

Kenny Swain’s men beat Scotland by a single goal last night to secure the trophy.

Only a point was needed at Burton Albion’s ground to lift the trophy following a thrashing of Northern Ireland and a narrow victory over Wales, but the Young Lions went one better and beat the Scots thanks to a goal from Giorgio Rasulo, of MK Dons.

The game looked to be heading for a 0-0 draw until added time when Rasulo popped up and curled a beautiful effort past the goalkeeper to start the celebrations.

Reaction from Kenny Swain to come.
