Peter Taylor's was pleased with his side's Toulon tournament victory.
Peter Taylor's England Under-20 side kicked off their Toulon tournament with a 2-0 win over Tunisia.
The scoreline was a repeat of the senior side's victory against the Africans in their opening game of the 1998 World Cup finals.
Darren Ambrose and Wayne Routledge were the goalscorers, with Portugal and South Korea next on the fixture list for the young Lions.
Oaulid Hichri hit the bar for Tunisia before the deadlock was broken after half time when Newcastle United midfielder Ambrose headed home Peter Whittingham's cross.
Routledge, who is leaving Crystal Palace and is strongly tipped to join Tottenham, cracked in a second soon afterwards with John Welsh and Bradley Wright-Phillips involved in the build-up.
"It's good to get a win under our belt and, overall, I was happy with the way the lads performed," Taylor told TheFA.com.
"In the first half, we were a little sloppy and didn't play like we know we can. The second half was much better.
"The goal gave us a lot of confidence and, after we took the lead, that set us off."
