KCOM Stadium

As they made it two wins in a row after defeating Kosovo U21s 2-0 on Monday night, phil Foden scored two for England U21s.
Having played just 10 minutes of Premier League soccer for Manchester City this year, Foden looked keen to unwind at KCOM Stadium and poked England before close range (25).
Kosovo were a tough nut to crack when Foden was available to fire home for England, from 10 yards to rubber-stamp their success, and it required until injury-time.
In their opening Euro 2021 qualifiers, Aidy Boothroyd’s side have responded after a European Union campaign in the summertime, taking maximum points.
Kosovo, top in kick-off after wins from Andorra and Turkey, started full of the remarkable Lirim Kastrati and optimism watched his shot turned away for a corner .
England settled into their stride and Foden was available to shoot home the rebound when the line was cleared off.
Reiss Nelson and Tom Davies both went close before the break but Kosovo ought to have levelled when an attempt was spooned by Arbnor Muja from three yards on the crossbar.
Eddie Nketiah pulled a effort wide after the rest as England stayed in control without looking that harmful in the third.
That wastefulness from the final third almost came back to bite but Max Aarons denied Kosovo a scoring chance with a challenge inside his box that led to him limping off with a injury.
Foden final wrapped up the points in injury time, latching to keep England’s 100 per cent record in Group Three.
