“Bungay got my confidence back, they got me playing freely and scoring goals,” he said.
The striker is now on an extended schoolboy contract with Lincoln City, currently in League Two.
“I'm very excited,” he added. “It's a great opportunity for me and to play for England will be a great honour. Mixing education with football is tough but it's going well.
“Training with Lincoln has definitely helped me. All I can hope for now is to do well with England and become a better player as a result.”
