Tottenham Hotspur youngster Josh Onomah continued his breakthrough November with a silky goal for England Under-19s in their 5-1 friendly victory over Japan this afternoon.
The 18-year-old midfielder cleverly dropped the shoulder on his defender before sweeping home England’s opener at the newly-built Manchester City FC Academy Stadium.
Onomah started the month by making his Premier League debut for Spurs in a 3-1 win over Aston Villa, and has since got to experience the North London derby as a late substitute in last week’s 1-1 draw.
With Tottenham still to play two Europa League games and well positioned to qualify, a first Spurs start may be just around the corner for Onomah, who now has two goals in five U19 appearances.
Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham scored two, and would have had a hat-trick had it not been for a missed penalty, while City’s own Patrick Roberts and Arsenal’s Daniel Crowley also bagged in a routine win.
