Young West Ham goalkeeper Sam Howes was part of the England side which won the Under-17 European Championships against Holland this evening.

Howes, 16, was an unused substitute as England's young lions defeated their Dutch counterparts 4-1 on penalties after drawing 1-1 after extra-time.

Dom Solanke put John Peacock's side after 25 minutes but Jari Schuurman levelled before the break.

Howes and England reached the final of the tournament by beating Portugal, Holland and Turkey.

England won the tournament for the first time in 2010, beating Spain 2-1 in the final.
