Dominic Calvert-Lewin on target as England Under-21s draw in Holland

Dominic Calvert-Lewin helped England Under-21s secure a creditable 1-1 draw with their Dutch counterparts in their Euro qualifier in Doetinchem.

Calvert-Lewin gave Aidy Boothroyd’s men the lead in the 21st minute, with slick build-up play from Ademola Lookman creating the chance for the Everton striker.

Calvert-Lewin took his chance wonderfully, latching on to Lookman’s pass before steering a pinpoint shot low into the bottom left corner.

Impressive though the move was, the visitors were left shaking their heads 12 minutes later as they rued a defensive lapse that resulted in the equaliser.

A well-judged cross came in from the left and Gervane Kastaneer was allowed to ghost into the box unmarked to nod home.

Frantic scrambled defence from England prevented the hosts from scoring a second as half-time approached.

And it was Holland who had the bet chance of the second half when a shot was cleared off the line.
