Leeds fans react as Lewis Bate sends intriguing tweet

And the 18-year-old has now opened his account for England’s under-20s with a goal in their draw with Italy. He produced a smart finish with his left foot to equalise shortly after the Italians had taken the lead.

It will be a further boost to Bate’s confidence, with the former Chelsea man making a fantastic start to life with the Whites.
