Elliot Embleton shows Sunderland what he can do with stunning England u-19 display

The England under-19 international was sensational against Turkey yesterday.

England under-19s got their European Championship campaign off to a winning start yesterday evening. They defeated Turkey 3-2 in a hard-fought affair in Finland. It was a game which will have left Sunderland fans very excited.

The winning goal was scored in the 54th minute by Sunderland midfielder Elliot Embleton. His goal made it 3-1 before Turkey pulled one back moments later. He cut in from the right-hand side before rifling a rasping left-footed curler into the top-corner. It was an unstoppable goal and that, in itself, should have been enough to have Sunderland fans excited.

But his all-round performance was sensational.

He swung in a right-footed free-kick for Japhet Tanganga to score England’s first of the night. He then slotted a perfectly timed left-footed through ball into Ben Brereton, the Nottingham Forest man finishing coolly.


Sunderland were relegated to League One last season and it seems plenty of their young talent will get a chance this season

Embleton has to be a part of that. The 19-year-old looks to be a star of the future for Sunderland, if he can replicate this sort of performance on a regular basis.

There is certainly reason for Sunderland fans to be excited about Embleton’s potential impact at the Stadium of Light.
