Footage of a brilliant goal netted by England’s U19s on Sunday night has come to the fore online.
The Young Lions were back in action a short time ago.
In the nation’s first outing at the European Championships, Ian Foster’s troops went head to head with Austria at the Štadión SNP Štiavničky.
And, when all was said and done, an accomplished display culminated in England emerging on the right side of a 2-0 scoreline, to take an early advantage atop the Group B table.
Carney Chukwuemeka was first on target, latching onto Dane Scarlett’s pull back across the face of goal before directing a clever, off balance finish into the roof of the net:

The best, though, was yet to come.
25 minutes from time, Foster’s side killed off any remaining hope of an Austria comeback, courtesy of Alfie Devine.
Aston Villa’s Chukwuemeka again played a central role, receiving the ball in the area before dancing beyond a series of challenges to lay a perfectly-weighted pass to the edge of the area.
And from here, it was all about that man Devine, as the Tottenham Hotspur midfielder lashed a stunning effort into the far top corner, rounding out a fine day all round for England’s latest crop of up and coming talent:
A Devine goal for England!
