Chelsea duo Lewis Baker and Ruben Loftus-Cheek inspire England to glory

England U21s claimed their first Toulon Tournament triumph in 22 years on Sunday with a 2-1 victory over hosts France, thanks to goals from Chelsea duo Lewis Baker and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

Here, ESPN FC takes a closer look at the youngsters who made history in Avignon.

Jordan Pickford (Sunderland)

Born in Washington, Pickford joined Sunderland's academy in 2010 and has enjoyed loan spells at Darlington, Burton Albion, Carlisle United, Bradford City and Preston North End, though he is still waiting to make his senior debut at the Stadium of Light. Conceded just two goals in five Toulon matches.

Dominic Iorfa (Wolverhampton Wanderers)

The son of a Nigeria international of the same name, Iorfa joined the Wolves academy from hometown club Southend United at the age of 15 and has already made more than 50 senior appearances for the club. A tall, versatile defender, the 20-year-old has reportedly attracted interest from Crystal Palace in recent months.

Calum Chambers (Arsenal)

Regarded as ahead of Everton starlet John Stones when he completed a £16 million move from Southampton to Arsenal in June 2014, Chambers has gradually been pushed to the periphery since. Could leave the Emirates on loan this summer, and his Toulon performances should go a long way to convincing Premier League clubs to give him a first-team chance.

Kortney Hause (Wolverhampton Wanderers)

A left-sided centre-back who can also play on the left side of a back four, Hause joined Wolves from Wycombe Wanderers for an undisclosed fee in January 2014. He missed four months of the 2015-16 campaign with a hamstring injury but returned to shine for Wolves and earn his Toulon place, making 25 Championship appearances last season.

Matt Targett (Southampton)

Regarded within the Southampton academy as the home-grown successor to Luke Shaw, Targett has already gained significant senior experience as a left-back and left wing-back, making 20 appearances in all competitions last season. Also eligible to represent Scotland at full international level.

Nathaniel Chalobah (Chelsea)

Born in Sierra Leone, Chalobah joined the Chelsea academy at age10 and was part of the England U17 side that claimed the European Championship in 2010. He has spent time on loan at six different clubs in the last four years -- most recently with Napoli last season -- but is still waiting for his senior Chelsea debut. His younger brother Trevoh is also in the Blues academy and won the FA Youth Cup and UEFA Youth League last season.

James Ward-Prowse (Southampton)

One of the most established Premier League star of England's Toulon heroes, Ward-Prowse has been considered one of the brightest talents of his age group since joining Southampton's academy at age 8. He's been capped by England at every youth level and signed a new contract in January 2015 that will keep him at St Mary's until June 2020.

Lewis Baker (Chelsea)

The son of a former world champion power lifter, Baker joined Chelsea's academy from Luton Town at age 9 after impressing Blues scouts in a youth tournament. He has captained Chelsea and England at every youth level, winning the FA Youth Cup in 2012, and distinguished himself on loan at Sheffield Wednesday and MK Dons in 2015 and Vitesse last season, scoring five goals in 31 Eredivisie appearances from midfield.

Baker is technically adept with either foot and has distinguished himself both as a No.10 and a deep-lying playmaker. There is no suggestion yet that he is in Chelsea's first-team plans for next season, but his outstanding performances at Toulon can only have impressed incoming first team head coach Antonio Conte.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Chelsea)

The youngster many at Chelsea hope will finally succeed John Terry as the shining example of youth development at Cobham, Loftus-Cheek was criticised and pushed to the fringes by Jose Mourinho before earning a place in interim successor Guus Hiddink's first-team plans in the second half of last season.

A powerful box-to-box midfielder by nature but more often deployed as a muscular No.10 by Chelsea, Loftus-Cheek possesses an outstanding blend of physical and technical attributes, and looked a cut above most of his peers at Toulon, winning the Player of the Tournament award.

Nathan Redmond (Norwich City)

Signed from Birmingham City in the summer of 2013, Redmond was one of the few bright sparks in Norwich's ultimately doomed bid to avoid relegation from the Premier League, registering six goals and three assists. Having caught the eye again at Toulon with goals in England's group stage victories over Guinea and Paraguay, he could be offered a move back to the top flight this summer.

Duncan Watmore (Sunderland)

The son of former Football Association chief executive Ian Watmore, he gained a degree in economics and business management from Newcastle University shortly after scoring on his senior Sunderland debut in August 2015, and is already a fan favourite at the Stadium of Light.
