Arsenal’s Nketiah equals Shearer and Jeffers England record vs Andorra

Thanks to his effort against Eloy Casals’ team, the Anglo-Ghanaian is now on level terms with the duo as Young Lions’ all-time topscorer.

Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah joined Alan Shearer and Francis Jeffers as England U21 topscorer of all time with his 13th strike on Wednesday.

The youngster found the net 10 minutes after replacing Sam Surridge in the 3-3 draw versus Andorra in a Uefa U21 Championship game staged at Estadi Nacional.

With the six-goal thriller tied 2-2, the Gunners’ forward put the Young Lions in front eight minutes from full time after a one-two touch with Eberechi Eze. In the process, he joined Shearer and Jeffers in the hallowed ranks.

However, the hosts still had time to score a surprise equaliser on the break in added time through Christian Garcia.

Unlike Jeffers who achieved his feat in 16 games, Nketiah and Shearer reached that mark in just 11 outings.

It’s matchday for our #YoungLions! 👊
