Academy players Reece Oxford and Vashon Neufville started as England U17s began their Nordic Cup campaign with a 5-1 win over Iceland on Monday evening.

The pair both played 46 minutes as the Young Lions turned in a ruthless performance to see off their opponents in Denmark.

England took their time to get going, but once Liverpool attacker Yan Dhanda gave them a 25th minute lead there was no looking back.

Dhanda turned provider 12 minutes later, placing a ball over the right back for Admiral Muskwe of Leicester City to power on to and drill home.

England continued to dominate after the game's resumption and Tottenham's Marcus Edwards made it three soon after the restart.

Edwards grabbed his second - from another Dhanda assist - on 49 minutes and within five minutes of that strike they had a fifth.

This time Muskwe was on hand to complete his brace, and with the game won by England, Iceland managed a consolation through Dagur Hilmarsson.

England are back in action on Tuesday when they take on Finland, with Thursday's game against Sweden rounding off the group phase.
