Hall the England hero

Robert Hall came off the bench to give England U19s a 1-0 friendly win against Denmark in Brighton on Thursday night.

The 18-year-old striker has enjoyed a season to remember, getting six goals in ten matches at Oxford United on loan before having his first taste of Hammers senior duty on the bench against Bristol City earlier this month.

At a sold-out Amex Stadium, Hall came off the bench in the 60th minute and showed his intent straight away, firing in a decent effort on goal inside a minute. He eventually broke the deadlock on 80 minutes, continuing his fantastic scoring record for his country.

Hall, who turned 18 last month, has plenty of Young Lions pedigree behind him. He was a Victory Shield winner within the U16 set-up and helped England to win the 2010 UEFA European U17 Championship. He has also been capped at U18 level.
