England Under-21's picked up a second win in a matter of days as they beat Kosovo 2-0 at Hull City's KCOM Stadium on Monday night.

Aidy Boothroyd's side beat Turkey on Friday night thanks to two Eddie Nketiah goals and a Reiss Nelson strike, but it was Phil Foden who stole the show against Kosovo.

The Manchester City talent opened the scoring from close range after a neat move, before adding a second in injury time to seal a 2-0 victory.

 

It wasn't vintage England, and Boothroyd will still be looking for more from his players, but Everton's Tom Davies at least stood out.

The 21-year-old midfielder played as a deep-lying playmaker for England last night, despite first bursting onto the scene in 2017 as an energetic, box-to-box midfielder.

Davies has only played 11 minutes of first-team football for Everton this season despite issues in central midfield, so his England Under-21 role was a big opportunity to impress.

He did exactly that, with fans taking to Twitter to praise his 'class' performance, noting that he and Foden were 'bossing' the game.

Others marvelled at Davies's midfield adaptation, and having really impressed a number of fans, Marco Silva should be looking to give Davies a little more playing time in the coming weeks.
