Internationals: Tammy to the rescue

  • 26 May 2018

Tammy Abraham netted a last-minute winner as England began their defence of the Toulon Tournament with victory over China. 

The striker was one of four young Blues who started the game for Aidy Boothroyd's side in the south of France. Jake Clarke-Salter also played the full game, with Fikayo Tomori and Jay Dasilva replaced in the second half. 

England, winners of the Toulon Tournament in the last two years, surprisingly fell behind to underdogs China midway through the first half. 

Dael Fry found a way past a stubborn rearguard on 52 minutes, heading home from Abraham's cut-back. And the striker then tapped in with seconds remaining to complete the turnaround soon after China had had a player sent off. 

The Young Lions are back in action on Tuesday when they play Mexico.
