West Ham's Tomkins nets England brace

After making his full Premiership debut, the week became even better for West Ham's young defender James Tomkins.

Tomkins hit two goals as England defeated Russia 3-1 in an Under-19 international friendly in Milton Keynes - the same week as he made his first senior start for the Hammers against Everton.

He told BBC London 94.9: "It's hard to put this week into words. I still can't believe it now, I'm still buzzing.

"To score two goals as well, it's been a very good week for me."
