Norwich City duo Max Aarons and Oliver Skipp both start for the England Under-21s against Turkey tonight - and you can follow their progress with our updates from Molineux.

Aarons won his eighth cap as he played all of a 3-3 draw in Andorra on Wednesday, with the minnows finding a deserved equaliser in injury-time to end the 100 percent record the Young Lions had in Group Three of qualifying for next year’s European U21 Championship.

Aidy Boothroyd left some of his more experienced players on the bench, including Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah, Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi, former Norwich defender Ben Godfrey and City midfielder Skipp.

The on-loan Tottenham prospect has five caps at U21 level so far and is getting his first taste of regular starting action with the Canaries, playing every minute of the opening four Championship matches under Daniel Farke.

Victory over Turkey at Molineux this evening (7.30pm kick-off) will seal qualification as group winners for the Young Lions, although Turkey gave them a good run for their money in a 3-2 away win earlier in the campaign.

The Turks however have had a disappointing campaign and sit fourth in the group with two wins and a draw from seven games, so cannot qualify for the finals in Hungary and Slovenia.
