INTERNATIONALS: VAN AANHOLT WATCHES AS YOUNG DUTCH WIN

Patrick van Aanholt was an unused sub on Thursday evening for the Netherlands Under-21 side that secured a late win over Germany in Israel.

The game was their opener in the European Under-21 Championships and the Dutch let a 2-0 half-time lead slip before converting a 90th-minute corner to win 3-2. Spain beat Russia 1-0 in the other game in the group.

England Under-21s with Nathaniel Chalobah and Josh McEachran in the squad are next in action on Saturday afternoon, needing a good result against Norway having lost their opener.

In the annual Toulon youth tournament in France, Chelsea Under-21 midfielder Lamisha Musonda came on after an hour of Belgium's 1-1 draw against holders Mexico. It brings to an end Belgium's involvement. They won two points from their four group games.
