Tom Pearce made his England U21 debut yesterday as England beat China 2-1.

Ronaldo Vieira stayed on the bench for the Three Lions as England won their opening match of the Toulon Tournament.

Pearce came in during the second half of the match in the 67th minute. Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham scored the winning goal for England in the 89th minute after China was reduced to 10 men earlier in the match.

Hopefully Vieira gets some match time on Tuesday, when England take on Mexico in the Toulon Tournament.
