Young Blues Enjoy Wins

England U19 trio all feature in victory over Turkey.

Three young Blues helped England Under-19s record a 1-0 victory over Turkey on Thursday evening.

Matthew Pennington made his international debut, gaining 20 minutes from the bench at Telford, while Hallam Hope featured for the final 35 minutes of the friendly.

But it was Tyias Browning, recently revelling in a switch from right-back to central defence for Everton Under-21s, that earned the most plaudits.

Starting at centre-back in his first England appearance since being a part of the Under-17s in 2010, Browning played the full 90 minutes to keep a clean sheet - with victory sealed courtesy of Callum Chambers' first-half strike.

And after the game, Head Coach Noel Blake singled the defender out for praise.

He said: "There's plenty of boys away with the Under-21s and we've got a situation where some of these players could be going to the Under-20s World Cup in the summer.

"So I've got a scenario where I need to have a little look at one or two in case people aren't available. And I have to say, the likes of Tyias Browning - this is the first time I've worked with him - he did very, very well."

Meanwhile, Matthew Kennedy helped inspire Scotland Under-19s to a stunning 3-2 victory over Sweden on Tuesday evening.

The 18-year-old winger started the friendly contest at Somerset Park, but the hosts found themselves two goals behind within 47 minutes.

The comeback began 10 minutes later when a Kennedy corner was headed into his own net by Sweden skipper Nilsson Lindelof, before goals from debutant Mark Beck and Barrie McKay.

Scotland and England Under-19s will come head-to-head in May as part of the qualifying group for this summer's European Championship Finals.
