Norwich City goalkeeper Jed Steer was the hero for England Under-16s when they were crowned winners of the Montaigu Tournament in France.

Steer, 15, produced the matchwinning save in a penalty shoot-out as England beat hosts France 5-4 on spot-kicks after a goalless draw.

England netted all five of their spot-kicks through skipper José Baxter, Ryan Tunnicliffe, Jonjo Shelvey, Emmanuel Frimpong and Ezekiel Fryers to win the game and add a second honour for the season after lifting the Victory Shield last November.

Germany sealed third place in the competition after beating Ivory Coast on penalties.

City's on-loan pair Ryan Bertrand and Kieran Gibbs are in the England Under-19 squad for tonight's friendly against Russia at Milton Keynes.
