Leicester City defender and reported Leeds United target Liam Moore played for the England Under-21 side on Sunday.

England maintained their chances of progressing to the semi-finals of the 2015 UEFA European Under-21 Championship with a narrow 1-0 victory over Sweden on Sunday.

Manchester United youngster Jesse Lingard scored the only goal of the game in the 85th minute.

The victory in Group B game at the Andruv stadion in Olomouc has revived England’s chances of making it through to the last four of the competition.

One of the players who played his role in Gareth Southgate’s side’s victory on Sunday was Leicester City defender Liam Moore.

The 22-year-old, who can feature both as a centre-back and as a right-back, started the encounter and played for the entire 90 minutes.

The youngster is a promising young defender and has been linked with a move to Championship club Leeds United this summer.

According to a report in The Yorkshire Evening Post earlier this month, Leeds are interested in signing the right-sided central defender.

Moore featured in 11 Premier League matches for Leicester in the recently concluded 2014-15 campaign.

The youngster created one chance, had a pass accuracy of 77% and a shot accuracy of 50%, and won 25 headers, three dribbles and nine tackles.

Below are a couple of pictures of Moore celebrating the win for the England Under-21s on Sunday.
