Ethan Ampadu has represented England and Wales at youth international level

League Two side Exeter City stunned Brentford in extra time in the EFL Cup first round as 15-year-old Ethan Ampadu made his debut and became the club's youngest player.

Welsh defender Ampadu, who is the son of ex-West Brom and Swansea midfielder Kwame, started at centre-back aged 15 years, 10 months and 26 days.

Championship side Brentford struggled to create meaningful chances.

And Ryan Harley netted the winner in the 100th minute for the Grecians.
