Sam and England see off Turkey

12 October 2015

Sam Gallagher helped England Under-20s make it two wins from two in the Mercedes-Benz Elite Cup on the weekend.

The Young Lions, who saw off Holland with an impressive 3-1 triumph in the tournament opener last Wednesday, beat Turkey 2-1 at the Donaustadion in Ulm courtesy of late goals from Ryan Kent and Brandon Barker.

Dons loanee Gallagher, who scored in that win over the Netherlands, came off the bench to replace Tyler Walker in the 78th minute with the score at 1-0 to Turkey.

Liverpool’s Kent equalised two minutes after Gallagher’s arrival before Manchester City forward Barker, another substitute, sealed victory one minute into stoppage time.

England play their final game of the tournament, against the hosts Germany, on Tuesday afternoon.
