Marcus Rashford scored the opening goal on debut, as England beat Australia in a friendly international 2-1 on Friday night.
The Manchester United teenager now has a chance of making Roy Hodgson’s final squad for Euro 2016.
“We’re so happy for him,” his club teammate Chris Smalling told FATV.
“No-one is surprised at him anymore. He’s hit the ground running obviously with United, and tonight.
“A lot of the lads have been very impressed with him in training because he’s been that threat and his finishing has been quality.
“I don’t think anyone is surprised and it’s great to see him keep kicking on from each stage that he’s been doing this season.”
Another United player, Wayne Rooney scored the second goal, while Tottenham’s Eric Dier scored an own goal at the Stadium of Light. Though, that wasn’t the news of the game. All the talk was on Rashford.
Everton defender John Stones also gave his thumbs up to Rashford.
“I was so happy for him. I just said to the other guys there, such a young lad, to score on his debut, he took it so well,” Stones said.
