England U16s Secure Third Place After Penalty Victory Over France

England under 16s finished third in the Montaigu Tournament after a penalty shootout win against France.

Kenny Swain’s Young Lions drew 2-2 with the host nation to send the tie to a shootout before beating Les Bleus 5-3.

Goals from Jamal Hector-Ingram and Tom Davies saw England draw level on two occasions before Liverpool’s Adam Phillips hit the crossbar from a free-kick in the dying seconds.

The victory ended a mixed tournament for England, who lost their opening match against Saudi Arabia.

They drew their second game against South Korea before edging Portugal in their final group game to advance to the third/fourth play-off.

Hector-Ingram scored against Korea to end the competition as England’s top scorer, with Phillips netting in the game against Portugal.
