Pybus makes England bow

Young midfielder features against Scots.

Sunderland youngster Daniel Pybus made his debut for England’s under-16s last night as the Young Lions saw off Scotland.

The two sides met at Burton Albion’s Pirelli Stadium to contest the Victory Shield, which England won for the 12th successive year.

Midfielder Pybus, who plays for Sunderland’s under-15s, appeared as a substitute 13 minutes from time as England prevailed 1-0 thanks to a stoppage-time strike from Giorgio Rasulo.
