Chuba Akpom returns to Hull City with full confidence

15 October 2015, 12:09

London - Arsenal loanee Chuba Akpom will be returning to the KC Stadium full of confidence ahead of this weekend's Championship clash against Sheffield Wednesday, after scoring on his debut for the England U21s.

The player, who recently turned 20, marked his debut for the England U21s with a debut goal at Coventry on Tuesday night, firing home a close range effort in the closing minutes as the Three Lions secured a 3-0 win over Kazakhstan in a UEFA European U21 Championship Group 9 qualifying fixture.

Akpom's goal in stoppage time, after he was set up by Wolves' Anglo - Nigerian defender Dominic Iorfa, means he has registered his name on the score sheet for all the England teams he has represented apart from the Under 16 side.

Cumulatively, the attacker has appeared 40 times for the youth teams of England - U16, U17, U19, U20 and U21  and hit target 18 times, an average of 0.45 goals per game in the colors of the national team.

For all Hull City, where is on loan until the end of this season, the Hale End Academy product, has recorded two goals in 12 games across all competitions.

Chuba Akpom previously enjoyed loan spells at Brentford, Coventry City and Nottingham Forest prior to his move to The Tigers in the first week of August.
