Luke Bolton continued his impressive start to the 2019/20 campaign last night with an encouraging display for England’s Under-20 side.
The 19-year-old, who is currently on loan at Luton Town from Manchester City, helped his country secure a dramatic 1-0 victory over Switzerland at the Leichtathletik-Stadion.
Despite starting the clash brightly, England were unable to create any clear cut opportunities in the first-half as the hosts proved to be resilient in defence.
Searching for the winner in the second-period, manager Keith Downing decided to bring on Bolton who would go on to make a telling impact for his side.
With the game edging towards a stalemate, the teenager received the ball out wide and delivered a sumptuous cross for Leeds United loanee Jack Clarke who duly headed home to clinch victory.
Following the clash, Bolton posted a video of his assist on Twitter alongside the following comment: “90+2.
“Left it late but got the W and an assist.”
Upon seeing this tweet, plenty of Luton fans reacted in a positive manner.
Here are some of the best comments from the club’s supporters…
more of that on Saturday Luke 🙏
