Nketiah won a penalty and converted it himself to get on the scoresheet once again with the opening goal in England u21s 2-2 draw away against Slovenia before being substituted at half-time. Nketiah’s penalty was added to in the second half by the player who replaced him at half-time - Swansea City (on loan from AFC Bournemouth) striker Sam Surridge which looked to have sealed the match for England.

However, A misplaced pass from AFC Bournemouth goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale was punished by Dejan Petrovic to bring it back to 1-2 before Janez Pisek’s 94th minute free-kick was deflected in to claim a point for the hosts.
Nketiah wasn’t the only Leeds player undone by a stoppage time equaliser either. Mateusz Bogusz made his first start for Poland u21s in their 2-2 draw with Russia, playing 86 minutes.

Poland went 1-0 up through an own goal from CSKA Moscow defender Igor Diveev, but Russia equalised through FK Krasnodar midfielder Daniil Utkin. Poland retook the lead in first half stoppage time, Jagiellonia Białystok striker Patryk Klimala getting the goal.
Poland couldn’t hang on for the win though, and it was another FK Krasnodar player with the goal, this time winger Magomed-Shapi Suleymanov getting his name on the scoresheet in the 91st minute.
Finally, Kun Temenuzhkov was an unused substitute in Bulgaria u21s 0-1 home defeat by Serbia.
