Stephen Walker and England Under-19s made a winning start to their UEFA European U19 Championship Elite Round campaign on Wednesday afternoon.
The Young Lions came from behind to beat the Czech Republic 4-1 at St. George’s Park and put themselves in a commanding position to qualify for this summer’s tournament with two games left to play.
Jakub Selnar put the Czechs ahead but England were level a minute later through Bukayo Saka. Marc Guehi edged the Young Lions ahead four minutes into the second half before the lead was added to by Saka and Daniel Loader.
MK Dons loanee Walker was an unused substitute but he has two more opportunities to play his part, with the next game coming up on Saturday against Greece.
