The England U19 team won their opening group game at the 2016 U19 European Championships on Tuesday.
Aidy Boothroyd's Young Lions edged France 2-1 in Heidenheim, Germany thanks to a goal from Chelsea striker Dom Solanke and an own-goal from Clement Michelin.
Michelin turned a Sheyi Ojo cross into the back of his own net in just the third minute before Solanke, who spent last season on loan with Vitesse Arnhem, got on the end of a through ball from the Liverpool winger to slot home between the keeper's legs for his side's second inside 10 minutes.
First Game. First Win. First Goal. https://t.co/l5ly3bxDdR
