England scouts urged to check on Sporting Lisbon speedster Tiago Ilori

Sporting Lisbon whizkid Tiago Ilori is exciting staff - and should be doing the same at the English FA.

Ilori, who came close to signing for Toulouse in January, has just broken the sprint records of Manchester United winger Nani and Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo while they were with the club.

The teen played in the same Sporting B team as Eric Dier and Bruma which won the national title last season.

Ilori qualifies for England through his English father.
