Freddie Woodman kept a clean sheet on his return to the international fold on Wednesday.
The goalkeeper, recalled to John Peacock's England under-17 squad after recovering from an ankle injury, started the Young Lions' opening game of the Algarve Tournament against Holland.
And after a goalless first half, England scored twice in the second period through Southampton winger Josh Sims and Tottenham's Joshua Onomah.
In truth, Woodman enjoyed a quiet afternoon in Lagos as he played the whole match.
He will hope to keep his place for England's second game of the competition, against hosts Portugal, on Friday.
