Czech Republic U21 0-1 England U21: Jacob Ramsey scores winner for Three Lions

Jacob Ramsey celebrates
Jacob Ramsey scored six Premier League goals for Aston Villa last season

England got their European Under-21 Championship campaign off to a winning start as they beat the Czech Republic in Georgia to put themselves in a strong position to reach the knockout stage.

Aston Villa’s Jacob Ramsey scored the opener early in the second half, picking the ball up and exchanging passes with Anthony Gordon before bursting into the box and slotting into the far corner.

Emile Smith Rowe sealed victory deep into stoppage time when he tapped in at the far post after being teed up by Cameron Archer.

England also went close in the first half when Noni Madueke curled a shot against the bar after some good work on the right-hand side, while three other chances also went begging.

England did not have it all their own way, with the Czech Republic’s best chance falling to forward Vasil Kusej, who raced through on goal but shot wide.
