4) Sammy Ameobi scored with his first shot of the match, just ten seconds into the start of the second period. He fashioned two strikes in total - the team's joint-best effort - 50% of which were on target. The England under-21 also won 100% of his aerial duels and 100% of his tackles.

5) Younes Kaboul recorded more touches of the ball (98) than any other player in this match, while he also played the most passes (67), completing 77.6% of his attempts to find a team-mate.
