International report: Onomah win, Davis scores again, Elmohamady start

Josh Onomah helped England U21s to a last-gasp 2-1 victory over Ukraine U21s.

Dominic Solanke’s header helped the Three Lions strengthen their chances of qualifying for the UEFA European U21 Championships in 2019.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin opened the scoring before Mykola Shaparenko equalised with seven minutes to play.

But substitute Solanke had the final word, meeting Ben Chilwell’s cross in dominant fashion with two minutes to spare to open up a five-point gap at the top of their qualifying group.

Onomah played the full 90 minutes for Ady Boothroyd’s team.

Keinan Davis scored his second goal in as many games for England U20s as they defeated Portugal U20s 3-0.

Fellow Villan Easah Suliman – currently on loan at Grimsby Town – also scored on the night as well as Benfica’s Chris Willock at Manchester City’s Academy Stadium.

Davis scored from the spot on 41 minutes after being fouled in the build-up while unmarked Suliman headed home Willock’s guided cross on 66 minutes to round off a terrific night for Keith Downing’s side.

Rushian Hepburn-Murphy also tasted action for the Three Lions, replacing fellow claret and blue Young Lion Davis on 76 minutes.
