Leeds United striker Mateo Joseph scored for the England under-20s as they edged past Germany 3-2 on Monday night.

The international break is coming to a close this week, with plenty of Leeds’ key players coming back from representing their countries at either senior or youth level.

In England’s ranks have been a number of Leeds’ most talented players, with three in the under-20 setup for fixtures against Italy and Germany.

Mateo Joseph scores v Germany

Darko Gyabi, Archie Gray and Mateo Joseph all featured for England’s under-20s this month, losing their first outing 3-0 against Italy in the Elite League.

A trip to Germany on Monday brought a start for Gyabi and Joseph, and a third goal at that level for Joseph, on the way to a 3-2 win.

Joseph scored England’s first of the match to level matters at 1-1, getting on the end of a low cross with a deft backheel that crept beyond the German ‘keeper:

Joseph surely has to be close to being a full-time part of the first team at Leeds, because his goalscoring at youth level is immense.

Whether it’s for England or for Leeds, he really does know where the net is and is scoring a wide variety of goals in the process.

Daniel Farke will be no doubt delighted to see him scoring on his travels and he should come back to Thorp Arch eager to impress.
