Arsenal youngster Eddie Nketiah continued his prolific form as he scored four goals and also provided an assist in England U19s’ 6-0 victory over Faroe Islands in Bulgaria today.
The young Lions got their European qualification campaign underway in fine fashion but they had to wait until the 23rd minute to open the scoring through the clinical Nketiah, who hit the headlines as he scored a brace for Arsenal in the Carabao Cup against Norwich City recently.
After Reiss Nelson, who produced an encouraging performance himself, had hit the post midway through the second half, Nketiah pounced to make it 2-0 and the striker completed his hat-trick from the penalty spot in the 78th minute.
In between Nketiah’s second and third strikes, Sunderland’s Elliot Embleton had also found the net, while Benjamin Brereton of Nottingham Forest also got on the scoresheet later in the game.
It was Nketiah who stood out the most, however, as he added another goal in stoppage time to complete his quartet of goals. He now has seven goals in three games for England U19s.
Midfielder Joe Willock, meanwhile, completed 70 minutes and played some impressive passes.
