Norwich City winger Jacob Murphy bagged a brace in a behind-closed-doors friendly as England Under-21s beat their Iceland counterparts 3-0 at St George’s Park.

Murphy strengthened his claims for a starting place for this summer’s Uefa Under-21 Championship in Poland this summer with a goalscoring display whilst Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham got the other goal.

England also won a penalty shoot-out 7-6 for some practice ahead of the tournament, which Aidy Boothroyd’s side start against Sweden Under 21s on Friday in Kielce (kick-off 5pm).

There aren’t any other details about the friendly against Iceland at this stage but it appears Angus Gunn started from a tweet sent by his father, Bryan.

Gunn, who signed a season-long loan deal with the Canaries on July 1 from Manchester City, is competing against Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford for a starting place.

Pickford has been heavily linked with a move to Everton this summer after the Black Cats were relegated from the Premier League.
