The striker scored twice on debut for the England under-20s.
They did however manage to keep hold of another. Forest fought off plenty of interest in their talismanic midfielder Henri Lansbury, even rejecting bids from recently relegated Burnley for the services of the former Arsenal talent.
Amongst all the mess they have had too use plenty of the young talent at the club, including striker Tyler Walker.
With Britt Assombalonga and Matty Fryatt out injured the youngster, who is the son of club legend Des Walker, has been used often this season.
His performances have caught the eye and he was rewarded yesterday with an England under-20 debut. The 18-year-old featured against the Czech Republic in a game that England won 5-0 yesterday and scored twice, to prove his credentials.
It did not go unnoticed. Lansbury took to Twitter last night to express his delight for his young colleague after his impressive debut of action:
Hopefully Walker can bring back some of that form to Forest after the international break, with Lansbury playing a supporting role.
