WEST HAM youth prospect Robert Hall celebrated his selection for the England under-16s squad with two goals for the Hammers Academy team at the weekend.

The 15-year-old thumped in two second half strikes for the under-18 team, as they eased to an impressive 3-0 victory at MK Dons on Saturday morning.

Ahmed Abdulla had opened the scoring early in the second half, before it became the Hall show.

Cristian Montano and Nick Barrett set him up for the opening goal, before the third was all his own work.
