David Parkhouse made the jump up to international under 21 level in fine style with a goal on his Northern Ireland debut.

The Sheffield United midfielder opened the scoring against in his first appearance for Ian Baraclough's side as Northern Ireland opened their European Under-21 Championships qualifying campaign with a last-gasp 2-1 win away to Estonia

The hosts had gone in front after just five minutes but 17 year-old Parkhouse sparked a late fight back by scoring with 15 minutes remaining.

The United under 18 player was then brought down in the box in injury time and Hartlepool's Liam Donnelly rifled home the penalty to secure all three points.

Meanwhile, David Brooks was in the starting line-up as England made it through to the final of the Toulon Tournament with a 3-0 win over Scotland.
