Thu 16 November 2023, 08:10|Tottenham Hotspur
Jamie Donley bagged a brace and Will Lankshear scored on his debut as England Under-19s began their trip to Marbella with a comprehensive 6-0 win over Romania on Wednesday evening.
One of three Spurs players in the starting line-up along with defenders Ashley Phillips and Alfie Dorrington – we had five players in the squad overall – forward Jamie netted the Young Lions’ second and fourth goals at the Marbella Football Centre before being withdrawn on the hour mark.
Fellow striker Will was introduced off the bench at the same time as part of a raft of England changes for his first-ever taste of international football and he wasted little time in making an impact, scoring from close range just 11 minutes later to round off the victory.
Centre-back Ashley was replaced in the 71st minute while goalkeeper Luca Gunter was an unused substitute.
Amario Cozier-Duberry, Leo Castledine and Kian Best netted the other goals for England, who next face Japan on Saturday lunchtime (1pm UK).
