Four Chelsea players featured for England as they rounded off their European Under-21 Championship qualification campaign with a 2-0 victory over Scotland.

Blues youngsters Tammy Abraham, Jay Dasilva, Jake Clarke-Salter and Fikayo Tomori all started the game at Hearts’ Tynecastle ground, where Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon came on in the second half.
Brentford’s Ezri Konsa was an unused substitute for England, while Chelsea’s Billy Gilmour started for Scotland and was taken off just after the hour mark.

England, whose qualification for next year’s tournament was already assured, created a number of chances before a stunning free-kick from Arsenal’s Reiss Nelson put them ahead.

An injury-time goal by Kieran Dowell of Everton sealed England’s win.
