Fans have taken to social media to react to Conor Gallagher’s goal for the England U21 on Friday night, as the Charlton Athletic-loanee scored his first goal for Aidy Boothroyd’s Young Lions.

A 3-0 win for the England U21’s was sealed in Albania on Friday night with goals from Phil Foden, Gallagher and Reiss Nelson.

Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher scored just before half-time to give his side a two-goal lead going into half-time, and with a fine strike from the edge of the box with his left foot.

He posted this on his Instagram yesterday, and fans were quick to react:
