The pair started in Drammen as a penalty in the first half from Southampton's James Ward-Prowse proved enough for a 1-0 victory.

Eric started in central defence as the Young Lions were put under plenty of pressure but held firm. Dele, playing his first U21 qualfying match, was substituted at half-time.

Josh Onomah was on target as England Under-19s drew 1-1 against Croatia in Zagreb. Trailing to a first half penalty, the midfielder fired home 18 minutes from time. Josh played 84 minutes while team-mate Kyle Walker-Peters completed the full 90.

Harry Winks played 86 minutes and went close in the first half as England Under-20s saw a lot of the ball and created plenty of chances only to fall to a 1-0 friendly defeat against the Czech Republic at Shrewsbury's Greenhous Meadow.

In senior action, Hugo Lloris captained France and played the full 90 minutes as Les Blues overcame Serbia 2-1 in Bordeaux.

TUESDAY ACTION

Harry Kane and Ryan Mason will aim to help England maintain their 100 per cent in Euro 2016 qualifying Group E against Switzerland at Wembley tonight (Tuesday, September 8, 7.45pm).
