Midfielder scored the winning goal in win over Wales in Tallinn.
England U17s beat Wales 1-0 in the UEFA European Championship qualifier in Tallinn with Kean and Ashley Smith-Brown both playing key roles.
Kean played all 80 minutes of the match and was the difference between the teams as he burst from midfield after 35 minutes and unleashed an unstoppable drive from distance to put England 1-0 up.
Club teammate Smith-Brown came off the bench for Charlie Colkett after 65 minutes and helped England to keep a clean sheet, nearly getting on the scoresheet himself in stoppage time.
It was the Three Lions second win of the campaign after they beat hosts Estonia 2-0 last Sunday. Bryan and Smith-Brown both played 80 minutes in that match, too.
England's third and final qualifier takes place against Northern Ireland on Friday at the Lillekula Stadium in Tallinn needing a win to qualify with a 100% record for the Elite Stage.
