Frustration was suffered by aidy Boothroyd’s team since they were knocked out of the Championship from the group stages and it seemed like that feeling could endure on Friday night.
Six members of the squad for the qualifiers of this month have played for the Young Lions – Nketiah one of them.

Nelson had an opportunity to score of the teams went into the level after Dogukan Sinik scored after 25 minutes and raced clear.
England made a slow start to the second half and they paid the price six minutes after the restart. A corner saw Mert Muldur eliminate his mark and his rush to the post saw him flick the ball beyond Aaron Ramsdale.
But, the match turned . Foden was the architect darting goalwards before threading a pass in the penalty area only to Nketiah and on loan at Leeds, provided a finish.
