Engvall denied against Abraham’s England

Gustav Engvall played the first hour of Sweden Under-21s' clash with England Under-21s in Poland, which ended goalless.

The City striker, currently on loan at Djurgarden, was handed a start by his country for the opening game of the tournament in Kielce.

But the 20-year-old was unable to continue his recent good run of form - having scored six goals in12 outings for his Swedish loan club.

He did carve out Sweden's best chance of the first half, teeing up Pawel Cibicki in the penalty area, who subsequently fired over.

There was a familair face in the England camp, with Tammy Abraham leading the line. The Chelsea forward, who bagged 26 goals for City on loan last season, twice went close to breaking the deadlock in the first 45.

After Engvall had been substituted, the Swedes were given a glorious chance to secure victory when they were awarded a penalty ten minutes from time.

However, England keeper Jordan Pickford - Everton's new £30m goalkeeper - proved his worth by keeping out Linus Wahlqvist's rather tame spot-kick.

Both teams also hit the woodwork in the contest but were made to settle for a share of the spoils.

Sweden face hosts Poland next on June 19th, before finishing Group A against Slovakia on June 22nd.

Only the team that finishes top of the group is guaranteed to progress, although the best of the three runners-up will also make the semi-final stage.
