VIDEO: Nelson brace helps England to win

Reiss Nelson bagged a brace and Eddie Nketiah and Joe Willock both featured as England made a winning start to their qualification campaign for the under-19 European Championships with a 4-1 win over Hungary in Skopje.

Nelson made it 2-1 to the Three Lions with a rising left-foot drive from the edge of the penalty area on 54 minutes and then bagged his second with a tap in four minutes before time.

Chelsea’s Mason Mount and Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho were also on the scoresheet.

Willock, Nketiah and recently departed Gunner Marcus McGuane were late substitutes. The Arsenal contingent will be hoping to make an impression again in three days time when England face Latvia.

The finals will be held in Finland in July.

(Jadon Sancho!)

Not Bono

God I hope we keep him around…


That’s a sweet goal.


Nketiah and Willock weren’t late substitutes, they were…late substituted (they started)

granit(e) hard!

I am very worried about this young man, obviously he has bags of potentials, and I am always partial to flair players, and he definitely is one in the Jeff mode. However he is in that catch 22 situation where he is not getting enough first team minutes to show what he can do because Arsene (and Arsenal) are under immense pressure to win matches because of poor form all season long, so they cant afford to experiment with youth players in the squad, whereas the few minutes he has been given so far, he does look nervous and without… Read more »


“I think its grossly incompetent the way arsene allowed so many players to be in this situation.”

I’m not sure this is really a pattern. Which youth player have we recently let go of, and later regretted? Sure, Gnabry might turn out to be a miss in a few years, but beyond that, I’m struggling to come up with an example.

The basic fact is that so few starlets make the grade.

(and I’m not sure Harry Kane counts, because he was 3 months old when we released him)

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but you are slightly off point. The situation I am referring to here is not players being willingly let go and subsequently making it or not in their career but rather the club being regularly put in a contractual situation where its star players (and currently there are a few of those) and starlets (again, few of those, nelson inclusive) can walk away free on a Bosnian if they want. If there is a potential, and surely nelson is one of the standout ones from the current set, someone should have made a… Read more »


Nothing wrong with a ‘free Bosnian’, especially one who was ripping it up in the Bundesliga


Gotta love a free Bosnian

It would be nice to see him play in an attacking position in league games once we are out of the top 4 race for sure


read somwhere that Wenger is trying to develop his defensive skills before he gets a run of games. obviously the youth level is no longer challenging for him any more and we need to see him get regular games at senior level to gauge how good or ready he is for this level.
