Southampton winger Josh Sims helped England Under-20s to a 1-0 success over France in Brittany.

Sims was handed a start by coach Paul Simpson after being called up to the squad as a replacement for Charlton Athletic’s Erzi Konsa Ngoyo.

He completed 68 minutes before being replaced by Celtic winger Patrick Roberts, in a game that was settled 19 minutes from time by a strike from Barnsley loanee Adam Armstrong when he tucked home from Ryan Ledson's through-ball.

The Young Lions are now top of the table in the mini-tournament, going into their final game against Senegal on 28th March as part of their preparations for the FIFA Under-20 World Cup in South Korea.
