Liverpool whizkid Coady thrilled to lead England to U17 Euro glory

Liverpool whizkid Conor Coady was thrilled to lead England to their U17 European Championship triumph.

Coady was again impressive in midfield for England in the final against Spain.

The England captain told theFA.com: "I'm made up. I'm just delighted with everything that's happened. I think I ran over to the dugout and slid on my knees and then I just got piled on and I couldn't breath. It's just unbelievable. I can't believe we've done it.

"Lifting that trophy was just unreal. It's everything I've dreamt about and I'm so proud to have done it. I can remember every bit of it. I went up and I was shaking people's hands and the fella gave me the trophy and I just thought 'let's get it up there!' so I gave it a kiss and then just put it straight in the air. I've loved every minute of this tournament and to captain the side as well; I'm just totally made up.

"It's been a great experience for us all and I think it will help us as players a few years down the line."
