Sammy Ameobi stepped off the bench to help ten-man England Under-21s come from behind to record a 1-1 draw away in Finland on Monday night.
The Magpies' forward was a 58th-minute substitute at the Tampere Stadium, replacing Norwich wide man Nathan Redmond, as the Young Lions trailed to Moshtagh Yaghoubi's stunning early free-kick.
Within nine minutes of Ameobi's introduction England were level, as Harry Kane and Wilfred Zaha combined to set-up West Brom's Saido Berahino, who finished from close range
Gareth Southgate's side were dealt a blow with a late red card shown to captain Andre Wisdom, following an altercation with Tim VÃ¤yrynen, but they held firm for an encouraging point in group one of the European Championships qualifying campaign.
