The Black Cats midfielder played a starring role as England beat their old rivals Scotland 3-0.

The 18-year-old bagged the second goal of the game as the Young Lions completed a comfortable victory.

Highly-rated Embleton was operating in an advanced role, and got on the scoresheet in the second half, in between a brace from Leicester City forward Harvey Barnes.

Embleton coolly slotted home left-footed from 10 yards out after exchanging passes inside the area.

It completed a good day for the England youth players, with the Under-20s reaching the final of the World Cup earlier with a 3-1 win over Italy. Newcastle's Freddie Woodman was in goal while United team-mate Adam Armstrong and Middlesbrough's Harrison Chapman were on the bench.
