08 September 2015, 15:09

London - Six players of Nigerian descent were in action for the England youth teams on Monday as the Young Lions suffered mixed fortunes in international friendlies and European Under 21 Championship Qualifying Group 9.

The England U21s beat hosts Norway 1 - 0 at Marienlyst Stadium, Drammen, with Liverpool winger Jordon Ibe and Dele Alli handed starting berths.

The Liverpool winger had an opportunity to increase that lead in the second half after beating two defenders but his shot was inches off target.
