Internationals: Nelson scores twice in England win

Reiss Nelson celebrates for England

Reiss Nelson scored twice as England Under-19s came from behind to beat Hungary in Wednesday’s European Championship qualifier.

After conceding a first-half goal, the Young Lions bounced back in impressive fashion through Mason Mount before Nelson stole the show.
 
Our young forward raced onto a loose ball in the box before firing an unstoppable left-footed strike into the top corner to complete the turnaround.
 
Nelson was then in the right place at the right time to slam home from close range after Hungary had failed to clear an England set-piece, before Jadon Sancho added a fourth with just 10 minutes to go.
 
Eddie Nketiah and Joe Willock also started, and our trio could all be in action again on Saturday, when the Young Lions take on Latvia.

Elsewhere, Josh Dasilva played the full 90 minutes of England Under-20s’ 1-0 win over Poland in Bielsku-Bialej.

In the end it took a late strike from second-half substitute Keinan Davis to break the deadlock, with the Aston Villa youngster scoring his first Lions goal with just minutes left on the clock.
