2017 has been an unprecedented year of success for teams wearing the Three Lions on their shirts as England sides have garnered silverware on both the European and World stage.

Pride of place goes to the Under-17 and Under-20 teams who became World Cup winners in India and South Korea respectively, the U17's providing the most memorable match as they came from two goals down to defeat Spain 5-2 in the final.

The Under-19's were European champions in Georgia to add to the feelgood factor and there was also success at the Toulon tournament.

Many of the players involved have already made the step up to the next level and, perhaps as importantly, England are being taken seriously by other leading football nations for placing a much greater emphasis on these kind of tournaments.
