    England U21s 2-1 Turkey U21s: Aidy Boothroyd’s side seal spot in 2021 European Championships

    England Under-21s 2-1 Turkey Under-21s: Aidy Boothroyd’s Young Lions seal spot in next summer’s European Championships as Eddie Nketiah breaks goalscoring record just minutes after missing a penalty

    • England Under-21s have qualified for next summer’s European Championships 
    • Aidy Boothroyod’s side beat Turkey Under-21s 2-1 at Molineux on Tuesday
    • Defender Huseyin Turkmen scored an own goal from Ryan Sessegnon’s cross
    • Aaron Ramsdale saved a penalty from Halil Dervisoglu, who netted a consolation
    • England then missed a penalty of their own as Eddie Nketiah hit the post 
    • Arsenal’s Nketiah then broke the England Under-21s goalscoring record late on 

     Finally, the record was his. Eddie Nketiah had toiled for much of this, a night when Turkey lured England’s Under 21s into an ugly battle.

    He had missed a penalty, striking the post with seven minutes remaining, and it seemed that surpassing Alan Shearer’s 13-goal haul at this level would have to wait.

    But Nketiah still had time to make this his night, racing on to a through ball and when he is nestled between central defenders, gunning for goal, there is usually only one outcome. 

    Eddie Nketiah scored his 14th goal for the England Under-21s which is an all-time record

    The England skipper impishly dinked home, qualification for next year’s European Championship assured.

    ‘It is amazing,’ Nketiah said. ‘To get the record and be alongside those names is a dream come true.’

    Turkey were impetuous opponents, this a scrappy victory, yet Aidy Boothroyd has what he wanted: two glorified friendlies next month against Andorra and Albania, rather than important two qualifiers. Those will offer a final chance to hone his squad after a trying October camp.

    ‘I’ve told the players we’ve got to be better than that if we want to progress,’ Boothroyd said. ‘I thought Turkey were physically imposing, slowing the match down.’

    French referee Willy Delajod attempted to remove any joy from the occasion, fumbling for his whistle with annoying regularity as England attempted to catch Turkey quickly in midfield. It harmed the flow, although the hosts led after 17 minutes.

    Much of it was owed to the combination of James Justin and Ryan Sessegnon down the left, the latter dashing into the box, crossing for Nketiah, only for Huseyin Turkmen to divert past his goalkeeper at the near post.

    Nketiah then had one disallowed, while Aaron Ramsdale diverted Ahmet Canbaz’s long-range effort from danger.

    Drama followed eight minutes after half-time, Oliver Skipp’s under-hit pass leaving Ramsdale stranded and Halil Dervisoglu capitalising, blatantly diving to the ground despite no contact.

    Without the assistance of VAR, Delajod grinned smugly as he awarded a barbaric penalty, one Ramsdale saved from Dervisoglu with embarrassing ease down to his left. Ramsdale smirked back.

    Nketiah later missed from the spot, then scored, before the villain, Dervisoglu, netted a stoppage-time consolation.
