Manchester United youngster Will Fish led the England U19s to a win over the weekend.
England beat Mexico 3-1 in a game in sunny Marbella, Spain.
Fish had previously represented England in the U17 and U18 and this move to the U19 was another step in his development.
Fish, 18, was the only Manchester United player involved in the game, with Shola Shoretire not coming on as a substitute.
England’s U19s face Belgium in the final game of the international break on Tuesday.
Manchester United teammates praised Fish on social media, as did former academy coach Nicky Butt.
How’s the Will Fish season going?
Fish made his Manchester United Premier League debut against Wolves last season.
After serving in the preseason, he was loaned to the non-league club Stockport County.
The idea was for Fish to have a season of “men’s football” under their belt, as opposed to U23.
So far, the loan is not quite going according to plan. Fish has only played two league games out of a possible eleven.
He has 84 minutes of playing time so far, most recently as a replacement on September 14th.
The international games are a great time for Fish to win a few minutes before returning to his club to try and move on.
If United isn’t happy with his playing time by January, a decision will likely be made to call him back.
