Round-up: Nelson hits hat-trick; Akpom in England U21 squad

Arsenal schoolboy Reiss Nelson enhanced his rapidly-growing reputation further still today as he scored a hat-trick for England U17s in their 5-0 trouncing of Armenia.

Nelson, who also found the net in the 8-0 victory over San Marino on Tuesday, was in imperious form for the young Lions, as he scored two goals from close range that were sandwiched between an excellent individual goal.

In other news regarding the England set-up, striker Chuba Akpom, who is currently on loan at Hull City, has been named in Gareth Southgate’s U21 squad for the European qualifier against Kazakhstan later this month. Akpom was named in the England U21 squad earlier this season but had to withdraw through injury so he will be hopeful of making his debut at that level this time around.
