Fulham youngster spoke of his pride after playing a key part in helping England under-17s to World Cup glory.

The 17-year-old played a key role as the Three Lions put five past Spain to win the final in India, with Sessegnon providing an assist for Wolves youngster Morgan Gibbs-White, before later clearing the ball of the line.

The Roehampton-born youngster said on Twitter: "Two years ago I made my debut for England lasting only 50 second coming off because of a knee injury.

"Two knee operations later (keeping me out for 8 months) and many other setbacks, I was able to fight back leading me to signing my first professional contract, making my my first team debut and now I assisted twice in a World Cup Final, eventually winning the World Cup.

"Nothing was given to me, I've had to work hard for what I've accomplished and I'm proud of how far I've come."
