Abdou Jobe and Cole Neil were on target as the Para Lions continued their perfect start to the Deaf EUROs

England won their third straight match at the Deaf EUROs in Turkiye as they beat Scotland 2-1 on Thursday afternoon.

The Para Lions have already secured a 4-0 win over Wales and a 5-0 victory against Greece, and continued their peerless group-stage form in the third game of the tournament.

Abdou Jobe scored the opener for Sam Sharman's side, cutting in on his right foot and dispatching the ball into the far corner of the net.

And Cole Neil made it two after 64 minutes, finishing calmly with plenty of time to think about his execution.

The Scots pulled one back from the penalty spot with 17 minutes remaining after Jamie Clarke blocked a goal-bound free-kick with his arm.

But Sharman's team held on to continue their perfect start to the competition.

England's final group game sees them take on Germany on Sunday.
