Ings scores maiden England goal

First start. First Goal.

Danny Ings celebrated his first senior England start with a maiden international (senior level) goal - vs Wales, at Wembley.

The Saints striker, who was left completely unmarked by the Welsh defence, scored in style, acrobatically finishing via an overhead kick!

Having played the first hour in an unnatural right-wing position, Gareth Southgate eventually moved Ings into his favoured central striking position (after Dominic Calvert-Lewin was substituted (58 minutes)) - subsequently seeing his South-Coast frontman take less than five minutes to make his mark.

Amazing what happens when you play players in their natural positions....

Anyway, a 'buzzing' Danny reflected on his goal, speaking to after the game

The strike, which wrapped up a comfortable 3-0 win for England, caps a remarkable 12-month journey for Ings.

During that time he's scored 25 Premier League goals, celebrated both 'Players Player' and 'Fans Player of the Season' awards (at Club level), as well as regaining his place in this England side.

TSP - Did You Know?

Like TSP Host Ben Stanfield, Danny Ings grew up in Netley Abbey. Indeed they both attended the same Junior and Secondary (Hamble) schools......albeit a decade apart.

However, that's where the similarities pretty much end!

While Ings has gone on to score numerous goals at Club and International level, Ben has ended up completing Excel spreadsheets on a daily basis!
