Dan Adshead featured in all three of England Under-18s’ matches, as they won the four nations tournament held in Spain.
The 17-year-old started twice and appeared as a substitute in another, scoring on his debut against the Netherlands.
His goal against the Dutch came just 17 minutes in to his first cap for his country, beating a man before driving forward and firing into the top corner from 25 yards.
That put ten-man England 2-0 up, but their opponents rallied to draw the game 2-2.
His second cap came as a substitute in England’s second game against Republic of Ireland, as they won 3-1.
England needed a win in their final game against Belgium to win the tournament, in which Adshead started. Another 3-1 victory sealed the tournament.
The midfielder was named in the 20-man squad for the tournament in Murcia, just days after he had captained Dale in the Checkatrade Trophy tie at home to Leicester City Under-21s.
It is the first time since 2002 that a Rochale player has won an international cap for England.
