MK Dons Academy product Sheyi Ojo was among the England starlets who lifted the Under-20 World Cup trophy on Sunday.

Ojo, who began his career in the Club’s Academy before moving to Liverpool at the age of 14, was a second-half substitute in the 1-0 victory over Venezuela, which saw the Young Lions crowned champions.

Everton youngster Dominic Calvert-Lewin grabbed the solitary goal for England, who won their biggest international title since 1966. Newcastle United goalkeeper Freddie Woodman also saved a second-half penalty save to preserve the lead.

The Club would like to congratulate England and, in particular, Sheyi on the superb success.
