Two Watford players enjoyed a successful evening of international action for different reasons last night.
Daniel Tozser was rewarded for his fine form for the Hornets since moving on-loan from Genoa with his first start for Hungary for almost three years, while Jonathan Bond kept a clean sheet on his full debut for England Under-21s as they got their Toulon Tournament campaign off to a successful start against Qatar.
On-loan Genoa midfielder Tozser played the full 90 minutes for Hungary in their 2-2 draw at home to Denmark and set up the opening goal for Balazs Dzsudzsak with a wonderful long-range pass over the top of the defence.
Bond had been an unused substitute in the European Championship qualifying win against Wales on Monday but he was given his first start earlier in the evening as Gareth Southgate’s young charges saw off Qatar 3-0 thanks to goals from Jordan Obita, Jake Forster-Caskey and Jordan Cousins.
England now have a three-day break before they face the more significant challenge of a game against Brazil on Monday.
Former Hornets loanee Josh McEachran also started in the win over Qatar, while Nathaniel Chalobah was an unused replacement.
