Peter Taylor described Aaron Lennon as 'outstanding' after his debut for England Under-21s against Austria.

The flying winger maintained his fine form with his second man of the match performance from Sky Sports in his last three games (he also got the award against Fulham) as England slipped to a surprise 2-1 defeat.

Aaron tormented his full-back throughout the European Championship qualifier played at his former home - Leeds United's Elland Road.

However, his efforts weren't enough to stop Austria turning a 1-0 deficit at half-time into a 2-1 victory.


His display should earn another start against Poland at Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday night and boss Taylor has been impressed

He said: "This is the first time I have ever worked with Aaron and he is a very good player who wants to keep on improving.

"Every day we have trained, he has been very bright - you would buy a season ticket to watch him, wouldn't you?

"He was outstanding. He got the man of the match award and deserved it. The boy is a real talent. He is very clever and quick and when we got the ball to him in the first-half we looked like we were going to win."
