Chelsea wonderkid of Nigerian descent Ike Ugbo returned to the Young Lions starting lineup after he was omitted against Cuba and Japan, while midfielder Tariq Uwakwe was a non-playing substitute.

A brace from Barnes and Embleton's 50th minute effort secured the win for the Young Lions.

Earlier today, England's U20 team qualified for their first-ever World Cup final after coming from behind to beat Italy 3-1, with Dominic Solanke and Ademola Lookman registering their names on the scorecard.

Ugbo, who scored in the Young Lions opener versus Angola, was replaced after 64 minutes.
