BLUES YOUNGSTER AMONG ENGLAND GOALS

Chelsea youth team midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek was on target as England Under-17s made it a perfect three wins out of three in a four-team qualification tournament for the European Championships.

Loftus-Cheek levelled the scores with a header before half-time after Northern Ireland had taken the lead in a match played in Estonia. England then netted twice more in the second half before their opponents pulled one back to make the final score 3-2.

Another Chelsea youth teamer, Alex Kiwomya, played the first 76 minutes with our schoolboys Ola Aina and Charlie Colkett, who featured earlier in the tournament, remaining on the bench.

England U17s will now take part in take their place in an Elite Round of qualifiers next March.
