Tottenham youngster Kyle Walker-Peters helped England maintain their 100 per cent record at the European under-19 championships this week.

The Three Lions have won all three of their group games, the latest being a 2-1 victory over Croatia.

Chelsea's Izzy Brown scored the opener, and provided the cross for an own goal which proved to be the winner - but it was a strike which Kyle Walker-Peters claimed as his own.

Walker-Peters was closing down on young Croat Silvio Anocic, pressuring him into making the game deciding mistake.

Commenting on Twitter after the game, Walker-Peters was insistent the goal should be credited to him.


Full-back Walker-Peters was one of two Spurs youngsters in the starting XI, with Joshua Onomah playing an unusually deep role in central midfield.

Walker-Peters was congratulated on his efforts by former under-18 teammate Ismail Azzaoui, who spent a year at Hotspur Way before being surprisingly sold to Wolfsburg on deadline day, and has since gone onto make his debut for the Bundesliga side.


England are into the semi-final later this week when they will face either Portugal or France, with the final of the competition being held on Sunday.
