Wan-Bissaka Features In England U20s Win

28 March 2018

Aaron Wan-Bissaka won his second cap for England's under-20 team as he came off the bench during their 3-0 win against Portugal in Manchester on Tuesday evening.

The right-back was a 67th minute introduction by Keith Downing as he bounced back from the disappointment of being harshly red-carded on his Three Lions debut five days earlier against Poland.

Benfica's Chris Willock gave England a 15 minute lead at Manchester City's Academy Stadium before the home side doubled their advantage four minutes before half-time when Aston Villa striker Keinan Davis picked up his second international goal in a week courtesy of a neatly placed penalty.

A minute before Wan-Bissaka entered the fray, captain Easah Suliman added a third to put the game beyong Portugal's reach, and allowing the Eagles defender to enjoy the final quarter of the game after he replaced Callum Brittain of MK Dons.

Despite the back-to-back wins against Poland and Portugal, England finished second in the U20 Elite League, with Downing's team just a single point behind Germany who also picked up successive wins against the same opposition to claim the title.
