WEST HAM duo Blair Turgott and Matthias Fanimo were celebrating this week after helping England to the Victory Shield title last Friday night.

A draw was all that was needed for England to take the home international trophy for the eighth time in a row, but they went one better as they came from behind to beat nearest rivals Scotland 2-1 at Tynecastle - home of Hearts FC.

The Scots actually grabbed the lead in this match, but Arsenal's Zak Ansah levelled matters before West Ham striker Turgott grabbed the winner on the hour.

Both he and Fanimo have been vital parts of Kenny Swain's impressive under-16 team, who have beaten Wales 1-0 and Northern Ireland 2-0 in a game where both West Ham players were on target.
