ENGLAND’S under 19s proved the country’s footballing future could well be bright last week as they became European champions.

And they did so with two Warrington lads at the heart of their success.

Having played a key role throughout the tournament, Alfie Devine and Jarell Quansah both started England’s 3-1 win over Israel in Friday’s final.

Midfielder Devine, who is on the books at Tottenham Hotspur, scored during the group stage win over Austria and also provided two assists throughout the tournament.

Signed from Wigan Athletic in 2020, the 17-year-old son of former St Helens rugby player Sean Devine is in the history books as Spurs’ youngest ever goalscorer after netting against Marine in the FA Cup last year aged 16 years 163 days.

Centre back Quansah – a former Woolston Rovers FC junior – is a regular in Liverpool’s under 23 squad and has featured on the bench for the first team several times but is yet to make his senior debut.

He started all five games in the tournament at the heart of a defence that conceded just two goals on their run to lifting the trophy.
