Tammy Abraham has marked his maiden start for England Under-21s with a brace in Walsall.
Fresh from making his debut as a substitute last week in Kazakhstan, Abraham was promoted to the starting line-up for their final UEFA European Championship qualifier against Bosnia-Herzegovina.
John Swift opened the scoring for England and then on 18 minutes Abraham found the net, sweeping the ball home with a deadly finish from close range.
Josh Onomah and Duncan Watmore added further goals after half-time, before Abraham made it five with a superb lofted finish over the goalkeeper.
It continues his fantastic start to the season, having netted 11 times in 14 games for City since joining on loan from Chelsea.
Under-21s boss Aidy Boothroyd substituted Abraham with 17 minutes left, and the game ended 5-0.
Abraham told BT Sport afterwards: "I'm over the moon to get two goals today.
"The first one I don't really know how to describe, while the second one was a good finish.
"The boys well deserved the win today. Whatever team the manager puts out is a fantastic one; we've got a great togetherness and all want the same thing."
