Saints winger Josh Sims celebrates victory with England in the UEFA Under-17 European Championship

First published in Sport

Young Saints star Josh Sims has celebrated victory with England in the UEFA Under-17 European Championship.

John Peacock's men beat the Netherlands on penalties in this evening's final, in Malta, following a 1-1 draw in normal time.

Saints winger Sims, who only turned 17 recently and who signed a first professional contract at St Mary's last month, was an unused sub.

England took a first-half lead through Dominic Solanke, but were pegged back before the interval by Jari Schuurman.

The contest ended up being decided by spot kicks, and it was the Young Lions who dominated the shootout, romping home to a 4-1 win, as they were crowned champions of Europe.
