It has been a banner summer for England youth teams. And the European Under 19 championships have provided another moment of accomplishment for the Young Lions, with one West Ham youngster apart of the squad.

England has advanced to the final of the U19 tournament after their trilling 1-0 victory over Czech Republic, as Hammers’ 18-year-old keeper Nathan Trott saw on the bench the last second backheel winner from Manchester City’s Lukas Nmecha.

Trott’s England will face off against good friend Domingos Quina and Portugal, as the talented attacking midfielder put in another fine performance in his country’s 1-0 victory over the Netherlands at the David Petriashvili Stadium in Tbilisi, Georgia.

Quina almost played the entire match, as he was subbed off in the last seconds of the contest for a time wasting sub in Florentino. Gedson Fernandes scored what turned out to be the winning goal in the 25th minute after poor goalkeeping from Dutch netminder Justin Bijlow.
