Two for Tyler on 20s debut

7 September 2015

Nottingham Forest striker Tyler Walker scored twice on his debut for England’s Under 20s on Saturday.

The 18-year-old’s double set England on their way to a 5-0 victory over Czech Republic at St George’s Park.

Walker opened the scoring from a corner and made it 2-0 shortly afterwards when he raced clear of the Czech defence to slot the ball low past the keeper.

A successful debut came to an end when the Forest front man was substituted on 73 minutes and, if selected, he will be looking to show his threat once more when the sides meet again at Shrewsbury’s Greenhous Meadow this evening.
Walker wasn’t the only Red to be in international action this weekend.

New signing Ryan Mendes came off the bench to score a last-minute winner for Cape Verde in their African Cup of Nations qualifying match against Libya in Cairo.

After winning a flick-on, Mendes brilliantly controlled a lay-off from a team-mate, beat the covering defender with ease and coolly placed the ball into the bottom corner.

Deimantas Petravicius picked up his third senior cap for Lithuania by coming off the bench late on to face Estonia in a European qualifier.

Petravicius could feature again tomorrow evening when Lithuania take on San Marino and the 20-year-old winger will be hoping to make an impression as his country’s home qualifier against England edges closer.
Forest midfielder David Vaughan was an unused substitute as Wales were left frustrated by Israel at a packed-out Cardiff City Stadium.

Former Reds Chris Gunter and Aaron Ramsey played the full 90 minutes as Chris Coleman’s side failed to break down their stubborn visitors, leaving the champagne on ice as Wales await their first qualification for a major tournament since 1958.

Meanwhile, Reds youngster Alex Iacovitti played 90 minutes for Scotland's Under 19s on Friday night. He was at the heart of the Scots' defence as they beat their Bulgarian counterparts 1-0 away from home.
