The Everton midfielder wore the skipper's armband as Aidy Boothroyd's side took an early lead through Arsenal's Eddie Nketiah but then fell behind to the hosts 2-1 early in the second half to goals from Dogukan Sinik and Mert Muldur.
Needing to show progress from a hugely disappointing summer when they were dumped out of the 2019 Euros at the group stage, the U21s reclaimed the lead through Nketiah in the 74th minute before his Gunners team-mate, Reiss Nelson, scored the winner a minute later.
England take on Kosovo in their next match at Hull City's KC Stadium on Monday.

I don't know what it is with Silva, but he seems to have favourites, who if fit are almost a shoe-in, and others who don't even get a splinter off the bench.

Good to see him getting some game time.
Seems to have gone backwards a bit from when he first got into the team.
Need to find his right position to get the best out of him.
Keep on trying and good luck to you Tom

The reason for this is Ronald Koeman. After the great end of the season Davies had, securing a clear place in the starting XI, he proceeded to buy all 3 of Klaassen, Sigurdsson, and Rooney to take up Davies' midfield position. This unfairly shoved the lad so far down the pecking order that it was an uphill battle to ever recover.

Maybe Tom Davis is too much of a risk for Sliva. Tom plays with his heart on his sleeve; sometimes they have to use their heads to become a well-rounded player at this level..
