Hammers teenager shines for Under-19s
West Ham youngster Hogan Ephraim scored a fine goal for England under-19s as they ran out 3-2 winners against Switzerland on Tuesday.

The match, played at Crewe's Gresty Road stadium, got off to a break-neck start with Liverpool's Adam Hammill opening the scoring in the fifth minute before the visitors grabbed a quick equaliser.

Ephraim put England in the lead for a second time with a wonderful individual strike before one more goal from each side decided the result.

Ephraim's eye-catching performance puts him firmly in the frame for a place in the European Under-19 Championship in Austria next year.
