Egypt’s scored for ’s Under-21 side, as they beat Brentford 3-0 in the U-21 Professional Development League Two.

Bristol City U-21 side trashed Brentford U-21 3-0 at The Robins’ Failand Training Ground, with El-Abd, who hasn’t featured for the Robins since his return from Swindon Town, scoring his side’s first goal.

The Robins took the lead after just seven minutes when Egypt’s veteran defender Adam El-Abd smashed the ball into the back of the net after The Bees failed to clear a free-kick.

Bristol City second and third goals came by the 19-year-old striker Shawn McCoulsky in the 31 and 51 minutes to seal the game for the hosts.

The 31-year-old joined Bristol on January 2014 after making a reported €1m switch from English side Brighton & Hove Albion, but the veteran defender has found regular football hard to come by as he only played 14 League games since joining The Robins.

​Bristol City U-21 side currently occupy third place in the U-21 South Development League with 29 points from 20 games, 14 points behind league leaders Charlton Athletic.
