Winning trophies is a great habit for football players to get into, no matter how young or old.
Two Manchester United youngsters are celebrating lifting silverware after winning a tournament with England.
England recently beat three of Europe’s top countries to win the Tournoi de Val-de-Marne, an international under-16 tournament.
England beat Italy 1-0, Belgium 3-2, and France 3-2 in the final game.
Manchester United were represented by midfielder Finley McAllister and defender Harrison Parker, a recent signing from Arsenal.

McAllister and Parker both shared pictures on Instagram posing with the trophy.
A prestigious stepping stone?
Not heard of the Tournoi de Val-de-Marne? A number of high profile players have played in it early in their careers.
Paul Pogba and Hannibal Mejbri are among those to represent France in the trophy.
Just being selected by England is a big confidence booster to the two United players, and to win the tournament is even better.
McAllister made a name for himself when he made his Manchester United under-18s debut last season at just 14.
Now 15, McAllister has made four appearances for the under-18s this season, impressing in a midfield role.
Parker, 15, is a centre-back who United signed at the end of September.
He is still with United’s under-16s, but it would not be a surprise to see United promote him before this season is over.
