The England u16s were 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.

That put England in position to win the tournament with a draw on the final day. They did one better, beating France 3-2. Lewis-Skelly came on as a substitute in the final game, and you can watch the full match replay here.

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.

It doesn’t get much better than kicking off your first spell in a national side with a trophy, so congratulations to Myles!
