Young Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori played the full 90 minutes of England Under-21s’ 1-0 victory over Andorra in a UEFA European Under-19 Championship qualifying match in Andorra La Vella on Tuesday evening.

The player was only a substitute for Aidy Boothroyd’s men against Scotland at The Riverside Stadium on Friday evening but was handed a recall to the starting XI in The Three Lions’ latest match against Group Four minnows Andorra.

The home side battled well throughout the match and it took England until the 52nd minute to break the deadlock when Everton midfielder Tom Davies headed in from a Kyle Walker-Peters cross.

There were no further goals in the match but the 1-0 victory was enough to leave England four points clear of Scotland who are currently occupying second place in the group.

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham was an unused substitute for the match with the player being rested after a good performance against Scotland on Friday which saw him score a penalty kick and provide an assist.

Former Blues striker Dominic Solanke, now of Liverpool, came off the bench in the 79th minute to replace Everton star Dominic Calvert-Lewin who had earlier had a goal ruled out for offside.

The Chelsea Presser would like to congratulate both Tomori and Abraham on their achievements for England against Scotland and Andorra within the last four days.
