England's Danny Ings
Danny Ings celebrates his double strike.

Burnley's Danny Ings enjoyed some home comforts at Turf Moor as he bagged a brace to give England under-21s a 3-1 victory over Portugal.

Ings' name garnered the biggest cheer from the east Lancashire crowd when the two line-ups were read out prior to kick-off and it took him just six minutes to open the scoring with a neat near-post finish.

Right-back Carl Jenkinson drilled in a second before half-time and although Bernardo Silva reduced the deficit early in the second period, Ings' second of the...
