Sessegnon Stars in U19 European Championship Win

Sessegnon Stars in U19 European Championship Win

Yesterday, we ran an article whereby we hoped that on the back of signing a new contract Ryan Sessegnon would play a significant part in England`s opening European Championship Group B game against Bulgaria, in Georgia.

Well that proved to be exactly the case as England got their campaign open with an impressive 2-0 win.

Sessegnon was joined in the starting eleven by another Fulham youngster, Tayo Edun.

England got off to the perfect possible start when Mason Mount, of Chelsea, drilled home a low shot after just thirty-nine seconds.

The lead was doubled in the forty-eighth minute when Sessegnon was on hand to finish off a fine assist from the Nottingham Forest youngster, Ben Brereton.

England`s next Group B fixture is this Thursday when they take on the Netherlands, kick-off is at 14:30 BST.

England: 1 Aaron Ramsdale (AFC Bournemouth), 2 Dujon Sterling (Chelsea), 3 Jay Dasilva (Capt; Chelsea), 4 Tayo Edun (Fulham), 5 Trevoh Chalobah (Chelsea), 6 Easah Suliman (Aston Villa), 8 Andre Dozzell (Ipswich Town), 9 Ben Brereton (Nottingham Forest), 10 Mason Mount (Chelsea), 11 Ryan Sessegnon (Fulham), 14 Marcus Edwards (Tottenham Hotspur)

Substitutes: 7 Isaac Buckley-Ricketts (Manchester City) for Sessegnon 75, 12 Lukas Nmecha (Manchester City) for Brereton 78, 17 Jacob Maddox (Chelsea) for Edwards 83

Substitutes not used: 13 Nathan Trott (West Ham United), 12 Lukas Nmecha (Manchester City), 15 Josh Dasilva (Arsenal), 16 Darnell Johnson (Leicester City), 18 Reece James (Chelsea)

Goals: Mount 1, Sessegnon 48
