International Watch: Kelly helps England to victory

Lloyd Kelly earned his fifth England Under-20 cap as the Young Lions won 1-0 in Poland on Thursday night.

The City left-back, wearing the number three shirt, completed 90 minutes in Bielsku-Bialej, where a crowd of more than 14,000 were in attendance.

England were victorious thanks to a late strike from Aston Villa striker Keinan Davis.

Academy graduate Kelly helped England keep a clean sheet - even after the dismissal of Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka early in the second half.

Meanwhile, Rory Holden's Northern Ireland Under-21 side were beaten 5-3 by Spain in a thrilling encounter on the same evening.

City's young midfielder wasn't named in the squad for the eight-goal thriller, which was a qualifer for the UEFA U21 Championships.
