Ryan following in footsteps of legend.
Just a few hours earlier, the significantly younger Ryan Ledson raised the European Under-17 Championship trophy above his head, following a fearless penalty shoot-out by the young Lions in Malta.
The two events are not unrelated.
Exactly half-a-century earlier (sorry H!) the teenage Kendall raised UEFA's European Under-18 trophy above his head (or the mini World Cup as it was then known).
A month later he was playing at Wembley in the FA Cup final.
Kendall went on to become one of the greatest figures in the history of Everton Football Club.
Roberto Martinez has already said of Ledson: "He's a player destined to be part of the School of Science."
He is following in the best possible footsteps.
