The England u16s are one of four teams taking part in the Val de Marne tournament this week, joining Italy, Belgium and hosts France at the event. Arsenal’s Myles Lewis-Skelly received a call-up, his first u16 opportunity having only turned 15 in September.

England kicked things off with a game against Italy on Tuesday, winning 1-0. Lewis-Skelly made his debut from the bench on that occasion.

Lewis-Skelly then had a chance to start against Belgium on Thursday, and he helped the young England side to a 3-2 win.

The 15-year-old midfielder is highly rated at Arsenal, and he even made his debut for the u18s earlier this year. He was in the squad again for a match against Norwich City last month.

After including France’s 1-0 win over Belgium and 3-0 defeat to Italy, here are the current standings going into the final round of fixtures:
