M'Poku gets one over on pals

Paul-Jose M'Poku stole the limelight from two fellow Spurs youngsters, scoring for Belgium's U19s against their English counterparts on Wednesday.

Both sides had already qualified for the European Championship Elite Qualifying round before meeting in Vise in their third game of the preliminary stage.

John Bostock and Harry Kane started on the bench for England and could only look on as winger and captain Paul-Jose, currently on loan at Leyton Orient, gave the hosts a half-time lead.

Academy forward Harry emerged from the bench in the second half as the Young Lions got themselves back on level terms through Liverpool's Michael Ngoo with four minutes remaining.

But almost straight from the re-start, Hannes Van Der Bruggen gave Belgium a 2-1 lead and that's how it stayed.

Both teams now go into the draw for the Elite Qualifying Round that takes place next Spring for the right to earn a spot in the Finals proper next summer.
