England's U20 side may have lost 2-1 to Mexico in the Toulon Tournament but it was one of the young lions who lit up the encounter with a moment of astonishing skill.

The Arsenal forward Chuba Akpom pulled off the following trick to bamboozle his marker and fly off down the wing.

Akpom has been likened to Thierry Henry by his Arsenal colleagues, with Alexis Sanchez nicknaming him 'Titi" in tribute to the similarities between the strikers.

Only time will tell if the 19-year old Akpom can come anywhere close to the achievements that made Henry an Arsenal legend, but on this evidence it certainly won't be for lack of skill if he fails.
