Leeds United striker Eddie Nketiah scored for the England Under-21 side on Friday.
Some Leeds United fans have urged head coach Marcelo Bielsa to start Eddie Nketiah after the international break following the youngster’s heroics on Friday evening.
Nketiah, signed on loan from Premier League club Arsenal in the summer transfer window, has struggled to play regularly for Leeds so far this season.
According to WhoScored, the 20-year-old striker has made seven substitute appearances in the Championship for the West Yorkshire outfit so far this season, scoring two goals in the process.
The youngster has also scored two goals in two EFL Cup ties for Leeds this campaign, according to WhoScored.
Nketiah was on target for the England Under-21 international side against their Slovenia counterparts in a friendly international on Friday evening.
The Arsenal-owned striker found the net in the 39th minute from the penalty spot.
Some Leeds fans want Bielsa to hand the youngster a start in the team after the international break and seem to have mocked him for not putting the striker in the starting lineup already.

We’d rather win the possession stats rather than the game— Liam Moore (@LiamMoo19110227) October 12, 2019
He’s even worth a start ahead of Harrison cutting in on his right foot— Thomas (@Leodiensian90) October 12, 2019

Could’ve scored a hatrick and he still wouldn’t get a start
