West Ham’s young winger Dan Kemp has spoken of his “pure joy” after England’s under 20s lifted the Toulon Tournament Title on Saturday.

The youngster won the trophy via a penalty shoot out with the Ivory Coast at the end of the 1-1 draw with Sheffield United midfielder scoring the England goals before one minute into injury time Ake Loba equalised.

Kemp, who played three times during the competition, said: “It was an amazing feeling to win such a great tournament with my country – the best experience I’ve had so far in my career.

To put the England shirt on and play for your country is an incredible feeling and to go and win is amazing.

“The feeling at the end was amazing and pure joy. I’m proud to win for my country and proud of the boys after such a great tournament for us. We were all so happy and buzzing to win.”
