Euro 2021 qualifying: Andorra U21 3-3 England U21 - Eddie Nketiah scores

Eddie Nketiah
Nketiah now has a record-equalling 13 goals in 11 England Under-21 games

England U21s were held to a surprise Euro 2021 qualifying draw in Andorra, who scored a 91st minute equaliser.

Aidy Boothroyd's side stay top of Group Three with six wins from seven games.

The hosts took a shock lead through Cucu Fernandez but the Young Lions turned the game around through skipper Tom Davies and Josh da Silva.

But Fernandez levelled and although substitute Eddie Nketiah thought he had won it with with seven minutes left, Christian Garcia claimed a point.

Nketiah netted his ninth goal in his last five qualifying games and his 13th overall for England Under-21s, matching the record held by Alan Shearer and Francis Jeffers.

England remain unbeaten, but it was a poor result against the minnows, who collected just their eighth point from their last 24 qualifying games, dating back to 2015.

Liverpool duo Curtis Jones and Rhys Williams were given their U21 debuts alongside Manchester United full-back Brandon Williams.

Despite the shock result Boothroyd will be confident his side can complete the job and seal qualification for next year's tournament.

They host Turkey at Molineux on Tuesday, followed by games against Andorra and Albania.
