Sheffield Utd striker Brewster scores twice as England U21 defeat Italy

Rhian Brewster scored twice inside the opening five minutes as England Under-21s defeated Italy in a friendly in Pescara.

Brewster, 22, placed a third-minute penalty into the bottom corner after Edoardo Bove fouled Conor Gallagher.

The Sheffield United forward doubled the lead with a delicate chipped finish following Angel Gomes' through ball.

Italy finished the match with 10 men as captain Nicolo Rovella was sent off after receiving a late second booking.

England went close to extending their advantage but Chelsea midfielder Gallagher was denied by a last-ditch block from Caleb Okoli, while defender Levi Colwill hit the post with a header from a corner in first-half injury time.
