Kyle Walker-Peters and Josh Onomah, England U20 World Cup

For Josh Onomah and Kyle Walker-Peters their U20 World Cup win was culmination of nine-year Academy journey and help of Ugo Ehiogu

Josh Onomah and Kyle Walker-Peters have thanked Tottenham Hotspur, and their late coach Ugo Ehiogu, for helping them realise the dream of becoming FIFA Under-20 World Cup winners. “This is for Ugo and everyone back at Spurs," Onomah told tottenhamhotspur.com.

Onomah and Walker-Peters have been playing together at the Spurs Academy for over nine years, and the brotherly friendship they have forged over that time made their 1-0 victory over Venezuela in the final on Sunday all the more memorable.

“I love him to bits; we've been working for moments like this since we were knee high and to share this moment with him is a dream come true,” said Onomah. “This is for Ugo.”

"I'm extremely excited for next season, especially after this tournament," said Walker-Peters. "I'll go into it with extra confidence, work hard and hope to get an opportunity to help the team."
