SHOTS hitman Roscoe D'sane was the toast of his country again last week when leading England to victory in the Four Nations Tournament in Wales.
Roscoe netted three goals in as many games to sweep aside England's Home Nations rivals and give manager Paul Fairclough sweet revenge over the hosts and current champions.
After having to be patient for a first team start, Roscoe was finally given his chance against the Republic of Ireland at Merthyr Tydfil on Tuesday night and rewarded his manager with the opening goal from close range on 14 minutes — his second in an England shirt.
A hat-trick then from Yeovil hitman Kirk Jackson saw England cruise to a 4-0 win.
D'sane then proved a pivotol figure for the Three Lions once again on Thursday night when his cool, calculated penalty kick routine — as seen manay times by Shots fans this season — proved too much for the Welsh in what turned out to be the tournament decider.
Yeovil's Darren Way gave England the lead on 18 minutes after the Welsh were left feeling slightly aggrieved at having a strong penalty claim turned down.
But England plodded on in search of the second and in the end it was the pace of Roscoe which made all the difference.
With 15 minutes to go, D'sane was brought down in the box after one of his jinking runs, and after Scottish referee Stephen Duff pointed to the sport, the Shots goal ace dusted himself down to slot home the crucial second goal from 15 yards.
All the was left then was a point against Scotland on Saturday to seal the tournament, and despite Fairclough's men putting in their least impressive performance of the championship so far, D'sane was on hand once again to take the trophy back across the Severn bridge.
Scotland's Ian Murray slotted home a first half penalty to send nerves tingling down England's spine but D'sane preserved his hero status with the crucial equaliser on 59 minutes — slotting home from close range after Barnet striker Junior Agogo had threaded the ball through.
D'sane's timely treble single-handedly brought the cup home, but the publicity received by his performances may give his club boss Terry Brown a summer headache as clubs line-up in an attempt to prize the goal-den boy away from the Rec.
Indeed Shots chairman Karl Prentice admitted: "It's fantastic to see Roscoe doing so well in an England shirt, although it will almost certainly add to the interest elsewhere. Roscoe will be a key player for us in the Conference next season."
