Interim boss Williams masterminded an eye-catching week for the likes of Lewis Cook, Dom Solanke and Roberts, as they recorded wins against Germany, Netherlands and the United States to win the tournament.
Roberts made his debut for the Young Lions against Netherlands on Wednesday, coming on with 15 minutes to go during the 2-0 win against the Netherlands, with goals from highly-rated duo Patrick Roberts and Adam Armstrong.

The Toon starlet failed to feature against Germany as England recorded a 3-1 win, before starting against the States and helping Williams’ side win 2-0 for a second time.
Roberts has been making steady progress for the Toon, after making his debut for Newcastle midway through the 2014-15 season against Leicester in the FA Cup.
Newcastle’s number 44 has also had a loan spell at neighbours Gateshead, making three appearances during a six-week spell with the Conference side in 2015.
