Eddie Nketiah was on the scoresheet again for England under-21s as they recorded a disappointing 3-3 away against Andorra.
His strike in the 82nd minute – a darting run to collect a through ball, followed by neat flicked finish over the keeper – is his 13th in 11 games for Aidy Boothroyd’s side and means he’s now tied with ex-Gunner Francis Jeffers and Alan Shearer for the most goals in England colours at the level.

The Young Lions needed all three points to secure qualification for next summer’s European Under-21s Championships but after Eddie’s late goal they went on to concede a stoppage-time equaliser.
They have another chance to book their place at the Hungary and Slovenia-hosted tournament when they face Turkey on Tuesday.
Interestingly, despite being picked for the squad, Reiss Nelson wasn’t included on the bench.
