Berahino also in the international fold for England U20s

JAMES Morrison played a central role in Scotland's 2-2 friendly draw against Nigeria at Craven Cottage last night.

The Albion midfielder saw his tenth-minute shot flicked into the net by Charlie Mulgrew as Gordon Strachan's side registered an early opener.

Nigeria levelled shortly before the interval but Scotland regained their advantage seven minutes after the restart, with Morrison again key as he tried to get on the end of Alan Hutton's cross from six yards out only for Azubuike Egwuekwe to get the final touch.

Morrison's evening came to a close just after the hour mark as he was substituted, with Nigeria going on to snatch a late leveller.

Saido Berahino was in the international fold for England's Under-20s as they came up against South Korea in the Toulon Tournament, however the Baggies striker failed to make it off the bench in a frustrating 1-1 draw.

Berahino had started both of the Young Lions' previous two fixtures in the south of France - victory against Qatar and defeat to Brazil.

England's Under-20s now face Colombia in their final Group B fixture tomorrow (4.15pm kick-off) knowing a point would be enough to book their spot in Sunday's third-place play-off, with Brazil already group winners.

Ben Foster is also in international action tomorrow and the Albion stopper will be hoping for game time at Wembley as England take on Peru (8pm kick-off).

Roy Hodgson's Three Lions play their final fixture on home soil before jetting off for the World Cup in Brazil, via a training camp in Miami which sees them also take in friendlies against Ecuador and Honduras.
