Turgott makes Under-19 bow

Blair Turgott made his England Under-19 debut as a second-half substitute as the Young Lions lost 3-1 to Germany in Hamburg.

Turgott came on in the 75th minute for Liverpool's Adam Morgan but it was another of the Reds starlets who stole the show.

Summer signing Samed Yesil scored a superb double, opening the scoring after just two minutes, showing fine trickery in the box before smashing the ball home.

After Yesil's opener the Under-19s rallied and drew level on 31 minutes when Nick Powell expertly chipped Odisseas Vlachodimos.

But Yesil once again put the hosts in front when Jordan Pickford was only able to palm the youngster's initial effort straight back at him and he tapped the ball into the empty net two minutes into the second half.

SC Freiburg's Sebastian Kerk completed the scoring, slotting the ball calmly past Pickford to ensure that there was no way back for England.

Daniel Potts was also part of the squad but was an unable to play after picking up a minor injury in training on Wednesday.

Both Turgott and Potts will be hoping to be part of the Under-19s squad for the UEFA European Championship qualifiers against the Faroe Islands, Ukraine and Estonia later this month.
