Aston Villa pair Ezri Konsa and Ollie Watkins played for England last night as they drew 2-2 with Belgium in an international friendly at Wembley.

The Three Lions went into the game on the back of their 1-0 loss at home to Brazil and were keen to bounce back.

Belgium took the lead early on after Aston Villa midfielder Youri Tielemans pounced on a Jordan Pickford mistake to slot his side ahead.

The hosts levelled it up shortly from the penalty spot with Ivan Toney finding the net on his full debut.

However, their opponents went up the other end to make it 2-1 when Tielemans got his second of the match when he headed home an impressive Romelu Lukaku cross.

England huffed and puffed in the second-half and struck late through Jude Bellingham with virtually the last kick of the game to earn a draw.

Konsa played the whole 90 minutes and had to switch from right-back into centre-back when Manchester City defender John Stones went off early in the first-half due to injury.

As for Watkins, he came off the bench but wasn't able to score. Assuming Harry Kane gets called up to the Euros this summer in Germany, Southgate will probably have to decide whether to pick the ex-Exeter City and Brentford man or Toney.

Aston Villa are back in action this weekend against Wolves as they look to keep their push for the Champions League on track. They drew 1-1 away at West Ham in their last fixture.
