Danny at the double for England!

Loader scores brace for national U19 squad

6 September 2018

Royals youngster Danny Loader helped propel England's Under-19s to a 4-1 win over their Netherlands counterparts, scoring a brace at St. George's Park on Wednesday.

The striker, who turned 18 last week, was called up to take part in two international friendlies recently, adding to his experience at U17 and U18 level already.

However, it was the Dutch that took the lead through a penalty from PSV Eindhoven youngster Zakaria Aboukhlal - but Loader, who has scored five goals in as many appearances for our U23s so far this season, quickly cancelled out that strike with his first of the afternoon just six minutes later.

Manchester City starlet, Phil Foden put the Young Lions ahead just before the break, before Manchester United youngster Angel Gomes consolidated the advantage by adding a third around the hour mark.

Loader scored his second to round off a handsome victory for England, in a squad containing the majority of the same players who won the U17 World Cup last November.

Next up for Loader and England is a trip to Tubize to face Belgium on Monday evening to round off their international break.

England U19: Bursik, Vokins, Panzo (c), Eyoma, S Sessegnon, Kirby, Gibbs-White, Sancho, Gomes, Foden, Loader.
