(Video) – Chelsea ace scores first international goal on first start for his country

Cole Palmer achieved another milestone on Monday night as he scored his first England goal in the victory over Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Gareth Southgate handed Palmer his first start at St James’ Park as he named an experimental line-up which also contained Conor Gallagher.

After a sluggish first half England stepped it up after the break and Palmer opened the scoring from the penalty spot, as he expertly dispatched the ball into the corner, despite the goalkeeper going the right way.

Palmer has now scored all ten of his penalties in his senior career and his ability from the spot could be vital at the Euros.

Trent Alexander-Arnold and Harry Kane struck late on to give Southgate’s men a comfortable 3-0 victory, with the final Euro 2024 warm up game against Iceland taking place on Friday night.

The 22-year-old was of course delighted, and described scoring for his country as a great feeling.

Of course he [Kane] would’ve took it, it was just before he came on,” he told Channel 4.

“Thankfully, I took it, It’s a great feeling, my first goal for my country.

“When it went in, I was buzzing, tonight wasn’t my best game, finding my feet on my first start but hopefully, I’ve done enough.”
