Eddie Nketiah racked up another goal for the England u19s against Iceland on Saturday, helping the Young Lions to a 2-1 victory.
Eddie netted the winner in the England u19s’ European Championship qualifier against Iceland on Saturday.
To make the clash even more dramatic, the striker scored from close range just seven minutes before the end of the 90 – one minute after Daníel Hafsteinsson had drawn the score level. Chelsea midfielder, Mason Mount, had netted England’s first in the 70th minute.
The 18-year-old has now scored a jaw-dropping five goals in two games after he found the back of the net FOUR times against the Faroe Island u19s during their first qualifier.
In total, he’s scored eight goals in six appearances for his country, which is fantastic, and he only seems he’s getting better if his recent form is anything to go by.
Eddie caught everyone’s eye when he came on for Arsenal’s first team against Norwich in the League Cup. The Gunners were 1-0 down and there were just five minutes left on the clock but with his first touch he brought the score level and in extra time he netted his second, sending his side through to the next round.
The teenager has also scored three in seven Premier League 2 appearances this season.
The young striker seems to be going from strength-to-strength for both club and country – it’s really exciting to watch.
Reiss Nelson also played 88 minutes for the England u19s, while Joe Willock was an unused sub.
