England Under-17’s got their European Championship Elite Round campaign off to the perfect start with a comfortable 3-1 victory over Turkey at Chesterfield’s Proact Stadium.

Arsenal youngster Reiss Nelson put the Three Lions ahead two minutes before half time and two minutes after the restart, the hosts advantage was doubled courtesy of 16-year-old Jonathan Leko.

Nelson doubled his tally from the penalty spot six minutes later to put England out of sight and despite Furkan Korkut scoring a late consolation for the visitors, it was a good start for two-time Under-17 European champions as they look to qualify for the finals in Azerbaijan.
