Oxford leads England to victory

England U17s, captained by West Ham United's Reece Oxford, maintained their 100% record in the Qualifying Round for next year's European Championship with a 3-1 victory over France on Thursday afternoon.

England topped Group Four with maximum points after goals from Chris Willock, Will Patching and Jay DaSilva sealed the victory for the Three Lions.

Oxford, still only 15 years old, captained the side throughout this round of fxtures, missing one game due to suspension.

John Peacock's men completed a hat trick of wins in just six days with a 4-1 win over Cyprus followed by a 1-0 victory over Macedonia.

The Three Lions will now progress to the Elite Round in the spring before the main tournament is held in Bulgaria in 2015.
