Yesterday, we ran an article whereby we hoped that on the back of signing a new contract Ryan Sessegnon would play a significant part in England`s opening European Championship Group B game against Bulgaria, in Georgia.

Well that proved to be exactly the case as England got their campaign open with an impressive 2-0 win.

Sessegnon was joined in the starting eleven by another Fulham youngster, Tayo Edun.

England got off to the perfect possible start when Mason Mount, of Chelsea, drilled home a low shot after just thirty-nine seconds.

The lead was doubled in the forty-eighth minute when Sessegnon was on hand to finish off a fine assist from the Nottingham Forest youngster, Ben Brereton.

England`s next Group B fixture is this Thursday when they take on the Netherlands, kick-off is at 14:30 BST.
