Neil Ryan's Young Lions rounded off their trip to Lisbon against host nation Portugal on Tuesday evening

England MU18s rounded off their International Tournament of Lisbon with a goalless draw against hosts Portugal.

The Young Lions went into the game off the back of a 2-2 draw with Norway on Friday before beating Australia 3-2 on Sunday.

The 0-0 draw on Tuesday afternoon hosts Portugal walked away with the International Tournament of Lisbon trophy.

It has been a successful campaign for the MU18s. During the term, they won five games against Netherlands, Faroe Islands, Belgium, Croatia and Switzerland and only suffered one defeat in their second encounter against Belgium in March.
