England’s U21s ran riot at Saltergate yesterday evening, home of Chesterfield FC. The young Lions thrashed Andora’s U21s 7-0 courtesy of six different scorers. One of the scorers was Reiss Nelson, who was making his U21 debut alongside Phil Foden and they both produced notable displays with the former being especially impressive. Arsenal fans already have a soft spot for Nelson, who has grown up through their academy and following his performance last night they weren’t shy of letting the 18-year-old know how highly he is thought of.

Nelson even took the time after the game to take some photos with eagerly awaiting fans.

Both Nelson and close childhood friend Jadon Sancho have scored in the Bundesliga this season.

Fans were full of praise for Nelson’s outing.
So excited about Reiss’ potential. It’s quite scary.
