Sheffield pair David Brooks and George Hirst were part of the England side which retained the Toulon Tournament with a penalty shoot-out win over Ivory Coast.

Brooks was named player of the tournament after some superb displays, while Hirst finished joint top goalscorer.

Both started the game and Brooks put England in front in the 14th minute but Hirst who had scored a hat-trick against Cuba in the second group game - a match in which Brooks also excelled - missed a penalty.

It appeared as though England were heading to victory thanks to that goal from the highly-rated Brooks, who will start next season loan at Chesterfield, however the Young Lions conceded a last minute penalty which forced a shoot-out.

Five expertly taken spot kicks sealed the win for England as they held onto the trophy they won last season.
