Everton fans hail Jonjoe Kenny for England Under-21 goal

Jonjoe Kenny scored a long-range goal on Monday in an England Under-21 match – and some Everton fans on Twitter hailed their defender for his strike.

The 22-year-old Toffees prospect has joined German club Schalke on loan for next season and will hope for regular first-team action.

He’s been away with the Young Lions this summer at the Under-21s European Championships and Aidy Boothroyd’s team will now head home after a disappointing tournament.

England were eliminated after losing their first two group matches and their final game was a 3-3 draw with Croatia on Monday.

Kenny picked up the ball from range and unleashed a stunning strike in the second-half to score, but proved he’s defensively vulnerable still.

The full-back has been stuck behind Seamus Coleman in the pecking order since rising through the academy ranks and has played 39 times at senior level for Everton since his first-team debut back in May 2016.

He’s now following the path to the Bundesliga as a young Englishman that the likes of Jadon Sancho and Reiss Nelson have been successful with recently.

A selection of Everton fans on social media praised their right-back for his eye-catching goal.

Here are some Everton fans on Kenny:
