EVERTON youngster George Green was the debut hero for England Under-16s as he struck in the last minute in a 1-0 win over Spain.

Green made his first appearance for the Young Lions by coming on at half time in Madrid and sealed victory with a curled effort from outside the area in the dying stages.

After the game, England Under-16s Head Coach Kenny Swain applauded both Green’s match-winner and his performance.

“It was a great finish from George, so I’m pleased for him,” he said.

“It was his first call-up and he came on in the second half. We’ve had four new players involved and they’ve all done really well.”
