Three Lions have reached quarter-finals of under-20 World Cup for first time since 1993
Tottenham Hotspur duo Josh Onomah and Kyle Walker-Peters helped England reach the quarter-finals of the under-20 World Cup yesterday.
The Spurs pair both started the Three Lions game in South Korea and played their part as they defeated Costa Rica 2-1.
Londoner Ademola Lookman scored twice for England to help them progress from the last-16 tie.
Costa Rica pulled one back a minute from time, but Paul Simpson’s team held on to book a spot in the quarter-finals.

Onomah started England’s first Group A match with Argentina, which ended 3-0 to the Three Lions.
Tottenham team-mate Walker-Peters was an unused substitute during the opener and both Spurs players remained on the bench during the 1-1 draw with Guinea.
Walker-Peters and Onomah played the whole match against South Korea, however, and appeared to have cemented their spot in Simpson’s team.
Both will hope to start Monday’s quarter-final tie with Mexico now and help England achieve more success in the Far East.
