Liverpool hitman scores winner against Portugal in Limoges.
England U19s picked up their first win of the new season on Friday afternoon, as Adam Morgan's second-half strike sealed a victory over Portugal in the Limoges Tournament in France.
Noel Blake's side had started off the four-team tournament on Wednesday evening with a 2-2 draw against the host nation, which they were perhaps unlucky not to win, but they weren't to be denied in this game and Morgan's 65th minute goal proved to be the winner.
Blake also took the chance to hand England debuts to Middlesbrough goalkeeper Connor Ripley, Leeds United midfielder Charlie Taylor, who replaced Jack Robinson at the break and then Reading's Dom Samuel who was introduced in place of Nico Yennaris midway through the second half.
The Young Lions will play their third and final fixture of the competition on Sunday afternoon when Ukraine are the opponents.
