Tottenham ace Joshua Onomah has expressed his delight after scoring on his England Under-21s debut in the 5-0 thrashing of Bosnia & Herzegovina on Tuesday afternoon.
Spurs academy product Onomah found the net from inside the penalty area as Aidy Boothroyd’s side thrashed their European counterparts in a World Cup qualifier in Walsall.
The youngsters had already progressed through to next summer’s European Championship, after their 1-0 win in Kazakhstan last Thursday.
Attacking-midfielder Onomah shared his thoughts on how he earned the call-up and what it was like after he scored a debut goal for his country.
“I’m just happy, I’m enjoying my football at the moment and I’m looking to keep this positive momentum of scoring goals,” Onomah told Tottenham’s official website.
“It was a surprise to be called up because I was originally named with the Under-20s but then I got a call saying that Aidy Boothroyd wanted me for the Under-21s, so I was excited to hear that.
“It was another proud moment for me and my family to make my debut at that level – and then to score was even better.”
London-born Onomah has participated in various age groups for England, including his best tally of scoring four goals in 14 appearances for the Under-19s.
The playmaker has made 23 appearances for the senior side, since his debut in the League Cup against Burnley in 2015.
He has made three appearances for Mauricio Pochettino’s side this term, scoring his maiden goal in the 5-0 thrashing of League One side Gillingham in the EFL Cup.
