West Ham kid Marcio Martins starring for Portugal U17s

West Ham United Academy forward Marcio Martins is impressing at international level.

Martins was on target as Portugal Under-17s finished second at the prestigious Algarve Tournament.

The schoolboy forward starred for his country at the four-team competition, which also featured the U17 national teams of England, Germany and Netherlands.

Martins started and was the hero as Portugal came from behind to defeat England 2-1. Reise Allassani put England into a seventh-minute lead before Joao Lima equalised a minute after half-time. The young Hammer then took centre stage, netting his nation's winner by converting a pass from substitute Romario.
