England U18s vs Ukraine

England Under-18s routed Ukraine 72-40 in Italy on Saturday night to win the 12th annual Torneo Internazional Valle D’Itria title.

The win means England finished the preparation tournament with a perfect 3-0 record against Division A opponents, also beating the hosts, Italy, along with Greece.

Luke Nelson had 17 points to once again lead England, with Dwayne Lautier-Ogunleye adding 12, Tyrell Isaacs 9 and Jules Christian Dang Akodo, Mo Soluade and Kingsley Okoroh with 6 each.

The tournament brings an end to the Under-18s’ preparation games, as they prepare to head out to the Division A European Championships beginning on the 18th July in Latvia. Drawn in Group D, they will face Ukraine, Turkey and Croatia.
