Norwich City goalkeeper Angus Gunn helped England get off to a solid start to their 2019 European Under-21 Championship qualification campaign.
The Norwich-born keeper started as the Young Lions drew 1-1 away from home against the Netherlands this afternoon, in their first match of Group Four.
The Manchester City loanee played the full match, with Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin putting the visitors ahead in the 20th minute before PSV Eindhoven midfielder Bart Ramselaar equalised 12 minutes later.
Aidy Boothroyd’s side continue their qualification campaign on Monday when they take on Latvia in Bournemouth (7.45pm).
Gunn is spending the season on loan with his boyhood club and has so far made seven appearances. The son of Canaries legend Bryan Gunn won his seventh U21 cap for England but remains eligible to play for Scotland at senior level.
