Ethan Ampadu
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.
