Arsenal winger Reiss Nelson was in the thick of the action on Thursday night when he started for the England Under 21s against Poland.
The 18-year-old rounded the Polish keeper before cutting the ball back for Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin to tap in for an easy finish:

Emery will get the best out of him

Watched him closely last night. Played well in fits and starts. I would just like him to attack the full back at every opportunity. Has undoubted technical quality, just needs someone to bring the best out of him.
Step forward Unai Emery.

Nelson has been on loan at Hoffenheim this campaign, although things haven’t entirely gone to plan for the teenager in Germany.
After a whirlwind start to his time in the Bundesliga, scoring six goals in his first seven league appearances, things have trailed off in recent months.
Nelson was even disciplined by Hoffenheim manager Julian Nagelsmann and was not picked in the matchday squad for the win over Nuremberg a couple of weeks ago.
He did, however, return for last weekend’s game against Stuttgart, coming on for the final few minutes as a substitute in the 1-1 draw.
