England's U21 side have won their third Toulon Tournament in a row, after coming from behind to beat Mexico 2-1 in the final in a baking hot Martigues.

And it is no different this year after Aidy Boothroyd's men came from behind to defeat Mexico with goals from Dael Fry and Kieran Dowell in France.

As well as success at under-20 and under-21 level, England won last year's Under-17 World Cup and Under-19 European Championships.

The "Young Lions" had secured the trophy in 2016 and 2017 and were targeting a third triumph when they faced Mexico on Saturday evening, with nothing to separate the two sides before the match following their 0-0 draw in the group stages. Goalkeeper Freddie Woodman then saved Francisco Cordova's drive.

The equaliser came through fortuitous circumstances as Mexico goalkeeper Jose Hernandez failed to catch Jake Clarke-Salter's long throw, leaving Fry to finish into an empty goal.

England, buoyed by their leveller, went in front just four minutes later as Arsenal youngster Eddie Nketiah sped away from his marker on the left and cut the ball back to Dowell, who sent a low, first-time finish into the bottom corner.

Bournemouth's Lewis Cook, who captained the side, also came a creditable second in the player of the tournament awards, behind only Mexico's Diego Lainez.
