Jack Grealish and Cauley Woodrow both scored twice as England Under-21s continued their winning start in the Toulon Tournament with a 7-1 win over Guinea.

But Gareth Southgate's men had to come back from behind after Thierno Diallo gave the Group B minnows the lead with only 48 seconds on the clock in Aubagne.

Grealish quickly volleyed an equaliser before James Ward-Prowse put England ahead from the penalty spot after a handball in the box.

The dangerous Nathan Redmond zipped in a third goal before Grealish capped a full debut to rememeber just before half-time.

Grealish drifted past two defenders before firing home to effectively put the game out of sight at the interval.

Fulham striker Woodrow was the star of the second half and he helped make it 5-1 four minutes after the break when his initial shot hit the woodwork then ricocheted into the net off the unfortunate Mohamed Toure.

Woodrow got on the scoresheet himself just before the hour mark when he drifted in from the left channel and fired home past the exposed Guinea goalkeeper.

And he grabbed his second in the 73rd minute after Duncan Watmore raced onto a Nathaniel Chalobah through-ball before delivering a precise cross from which the Fulham man side-footed home.
