Southampton’s Callum Slattery helped England’s Young Lions to a thumping 7-1 victory over Cuba Under-20s in the Toulon Tournament.

Slattery was introduced as a 54th-minute sub in France for Neil Dewsnip’s team, which is a mixture of players from the under-18 to under-20 age groups.

England were already 3-1 ahead when the Saints midfielder was brought on for Ronaldo Vieira, after two goals from Harvey Barnes and a strike from George Hirst.

Hirst added another shortly after Slattery’s introduction, before David Brooks struck the fifth.

First then completed his hat-trick in the 70th minute, ahead of Martell Taylor-Crossdale completing the scoring shortly before full-time.

The result maintains England’s perfect start, after their 1-0 win over Angola in their opening group match.

They will finish their group stage campaign next Tuesday, when they face Japan, as they look to advance to the semi-finals.
