We’re in the throes of the international break this weekend, and at least one member of Tottenham Hotspur is enjoying himself. Ryan Sessegnon scored a beauty today for the England U21s in a Euro U21 Qualifying match against Kosovo.

That’s a nice run and an even nicer finish. But he wasn’t done! Late in the match Sessegnon then went one further, dispossessing a Kosovan defender and feeding 17-year old Jude Bellingham to score.

England dismantled Kosovo 6-0 in the match, with Arsenal products scoring four of the goals — striker Eddie Nketiah had a hat trick and Reiss Nelson added another to round everything out.
The win keeps the Young Lions on top of their U21 Euro qualifying group and they’re hoping to end there to be one of the automatic qualifiers for next summer’s competition. As for Sessegnon, I’m pretty sure he’s hoping Jose Mourinho was watching that strike!
