West Ham and England forward Rob Hall targets success in Estonia.
England forward Robert Hall
goes into next week's European Championship Finals on the back of a fine season domestically and is also hoping to come back from Estonia with more honours and firing on all cylinders ahead of the new campaign.
The 18-year-old West Ham star had a productive loan spell with Oxford United last season, scoring six goals in ten appearances and impressing enough for Hammers boss Sam Allardyce to recall him back to Upton Park.
Hall was also part of the England U17s squad who won the European Championship two years ago in Liechtenstein and with nine other players from that group selected by U19s Head Coach Noel Blake, he feels the Young Lions can go out there and impress.
"I am looking forward to it, we have got a strong squad and players with a lot of experience," said Hall.
"It should be a very competitive tournament, but I believe we can do well, though. We will take every game as it comes, game-by-game, like we did when we won it as U17s.
"We will not get too excited if we win and will try to do exactly what we did two years ago. Obviously we will all be there to try to impress, both our England coach and our club managers."
The U17s class of 2010, under John Peacock, won the 2010 Final with a victory over Spain
following on from a semi-final success against France
after coming through a group stage containing Czech Republic, Greece and Turkey highlighting just how tough these tournaments are.
With England facing Croatia, Serbia and France in their group games, Hall knows that the squad will have to be on form if they are to progress to the last four.
"It will be difficult to win the tournament but hopefully we can play well individually and as a team and do the country proud," he told whufc.com
"We're in a harder group than when we won it as U17s, but everyone goes to the tournament with a point to prove and wanting to be involved and whatever part I have to play, I'll be doing my best.
"When we won the U17 tournament I started one game and was used as a substitute in all the others, so I had a big part to play."
Hall missed the Elite Qualifying Round games in May, but having made a goalscoring debut for Blake's team against Denmark
in Brighton last November, he's certainly no stranger to playing at this level.
"I was not involved in the final round of qualifiers, but I had had a phone-call and was told I would be involved in the final tournament if we got through," he revealed.
"I have played one game before at U19 level against Denmark back in November and I scored the winner, so I know I can play at this level and do well.
"I have only recently returned from holiday and I did feel a bit leggy when I started training again, but that has quickly disappeared and I'm feeling fit and sharp again."
