Kian Best scored from 20 yards and claimed an assist on his first appearance for England U19.

The teenager, who joined up with the Young Lions for the first time earlier this week, was named in the starting XI for their match in Marbella against Romania on Wednesday.

England raced into a three-goal lead after 36 minutes, with North End’s left-sided defender crossing and assisting the third of the night, headed home by Chelsea's Leo Castledine.

Besty then got on the scoresheet in the second half, striking from the edge of the area and netting his country’s fifth of the evening.

The 18-year-old – supported on the night by manager Ryan Lowe – was substituted in the 71st minute.

Next up for England U19 is another fixture in Marbella against Japan on Saturday 18th November (1pm kick-off).
