Leeds United striker Eddie Nketiah made his name known on the international stage last night as he fired in two goals for the England under-21’s.
Nketiah’s double helped the Young Lions to a 3-2 win over in Turkey as Aidy Boothroyd’s men got a vital win, with the youngster further cementing his reputation in the game as one of the best up and coming strikers.
The Arsenal man signed for Leeds at the end of the transfer window and despite not being a regular starter under Marcelo Bielsa as yet, he has already hit the back of the net three times, including scoring on his full Elland Road debut.
The youngster is quickly becoming a firm fan favourite with the Leeds fans and there has been a building call for him to start more and more games ahead of, or alongside fellow striker Patrick Bamford.
Focus from Leeds fans then was once again on Nketiah last night as he took to Twitter following his international brace to show his own delight at bagging for his country.
There was plenty of praise and comments thrown the way of Nketiah from Leeds fans in response too…
Absolutely smashed it Eddie lad. Doing us all proud MOT
