England retain Toulon Tournament title with victory over Ivory Coast

England have retained the Toulon Tournament title with victory over Ivory Coast.

The two sides drew 1-1 after 80 minutes meaning they had to be separated by spot kicks, with Leeds United's Ronaldo Vieira the hero.

He slotted away the crucial fifth penalty after the Ivorians had missed their fourth from the spot, giving the Young Lions a 5-3 win in the shootout.

Earlier, Sheffield United's David Brooks had fired England ahead before George Hirst, who plays for the Blades' rivals Wednesday, missed from the spot.
