Jonathan Bond made his second start for England Under-20s on Wednesday in their 1-1 draw with South Korea at the Toulon Tournament.

Bond has previously won one cap for Gareth Southgate's Under-21s but the Toulon Tournament is classified as an Under-20 competition.

A youthful England side went ahead when Fulham forward Cauley Woodrow stabbed home after just three minutes.

England could not hold out for the win, though, as Korea equalised through Chang Min Lee ten minutes after the restart.

The midfielder was allowed to dart through England's defence before firing low past a motionless Bond.

Southgate's side play Colombia in their final group match tomorrow (Friday) knowing a win will see them progress to a third-place play-off against the second-place side in Group A.

Ikechi Anya played 84 minutes for Scotland in their 2-2 friendly draw with Nigeria at Fulham's Craven Cottage on Wednesday evening.

Anya, who could have represented Nigeria because of his father's nationality, was replaced six minutes from time by Norwich City defender Steven Whittaker.

Scotland took the lead after ten minutes through Charlie Mulgrew before Michael Uchebo leveled four minutes before the break.

Gordon Strachan's side re-took the lead in the 52nd minute when Azubuike Egwuekwe put through his own goal.

In the 90th minute Nigeria clawed back an equaliser through Uche Nwofor.

Former Hornet Craig Forsyth made his Scotland debut in the game, coming on as a 77th minute substitute.

Anya MOM for me, he was a real handful throughout the game. Unlucky not to score when he hit the post in the first half.

Scotland/Nigeria televised live up here - Ikechi brilliant - as the Guardian reports this morning he 'tore through the Nigerian defence time and again'. Hope he gets a well-deserved holiday and comes back to do the same for us next season.
