Making just his second appearance for the Under-21, Nelson stepped up to produce a magnificent moment from 30-yards.

The Hoffenheim loanee expertly struck his free-kick up and over the wall and into the top corner leaving Scotland’s Ross Doohan with no hope.

Despite having only arrived with the Under-21s, Nelson is already eyeing a step up to Gareth Southgate’s senior side.

Nelson said:

“Gareth has made it clear that the pathway is there so if you’re young and you’re good he’ll give you a chance.

“It’s good for me that I came through the ranks, I came from U16s all the way up to U21s.

“I’m trying to get in there and do my magic.

“A little bit showed today and I’m very happy to be there.”

Highlights: Scotland Under-21s 0-2 England U21s

Aidy Boothroyd’s side put together a strong European Championship qualifying campaign to top Group D unbeaten.

England have now qualified for next summer’s tournament in Italy and San Marino.

The Three Lions could travel with a very exciting squad with players like Jadon Sancho, Ryan Sessegnon and Phil Foden.
