Moore On Target In England Rout

Taylor Moore scored his first goal for England Under-20s in an 8-1 thrashing of Nigeria in the Continental Cup.

The City defender opened the scoring in the 19th minute at the Suwon World Cup Stadium in South Korea.

Barnsley’s on-loan Newcastle United striker Adam Armstrong immediately added England’s second goal with the first of a hat-trick.

Dominic Solanke was also on target in the first half as the young Lions hit four before the interval.

Callum Connolly scored early in the second period before a Patrick Roberts brace, while Armstrong added to his two first-half strikes with his third to ensure a handsome victory for Paul Williams’ team.

England are next in action against host nation South Korea tomorrow before facing Iran on Saturday.

The competition provides a taste of what to expect at next summer’s Under-20 World Cup, also in South Korea, for which England qualified by reaching the semi-finals of the Under-19 European Championships earlier this year.
