    They played a diamond and he was the number 10 dropping deeper, then switched to the LW a bit later. Did well considering.

    The pitch looked awful and heavy.

    Greenwood looked like he was employed out wide on the left, but he played centrally as well. Confused about his supposed position as well. The run of play somewhat went by him and players didn't really pass to him either.

    Formation and selection looked shite. Shoehorning rated players in. Looked like 5-3-2 to me. Admittedly my stream wasn’t the best.

    Yep don’t rate boothroyd at all. Perhaps this squad lacks natural width or the front boys are just so talented we have to get them on the pitch. Seemed a weird game.

    Definitely started with 5-3-2 then changed to 4 at the back when Greenwood came on. Looked like he was a number 10 then moved to LW when Brewster came on. Looked lively, couple of nice runs.

    Two nice finishes by Nketiah. First touch for his 2nd was great. Foden looked good although could've been his man that scored Turkey's 2nd from a corner. Nelson missed a great chance at 1-1. Panzo looked pretty good on the ball.

    Yep but i think this team "Bursik - Lamptey, Latibeaudiere, Oxford, B.Williams - Gomes, McGuane, Gallagher - Clarke, Loader, Ennis" would be still pretty okay for that level.

    The U20 level is not really important unless it's a World Cup season.

    I couldn't watch the match because of work but sorry mate that wasn't a "decent win".....i don't accept the excuses that the squad is very young and they haven't played much senior football because this turkish side is not good (For example that would be as our senior side would only win 3-2 against Ireland or Greece)......with the right coach (Like you have rightly said in a other post "Formation and selection looked shite. Shoehorning rated players in") the result should have been a easy win.

    What a goal this was for the 17s, think it’s Louie Barry to Jude Bellingham for the finish.

    17s beat Austria 4-2 to get in the final. Xavi Simons managed to get sent off within a few minutes of coming on.



    18s drew 1-1 with Brazil but were supposed to have been quite poor.

    Bellingham looks like the one who made the initial surging drive with the ball with the outlet pass, which eventually found its way to Barry who got the assist.

    You’re right, it is Bellingham driving through midfield, the goal scorer was Xavi Simons.

    @Sean_RedDevil

    Apparently the final will be streamed on a Polish site.

    That was a superb goal saving tackle from Aarons. Hopefully he’s not hurt too badly.

    Foden is a class above u21. I'd take him yo the Euros next year regardless of how much he plays this season.

    England u21s remind me uncannily of the England seniors under Sven.

    Some nice football and a fairly decent record due to the sheer quality of the players but no real tactical identity either.

    It’s always like this with Boothroyd, less than the sum of our parts but mostly seem to get the win, There’s no patterns of play, just give it to Nelson or Foden and hope they do something.

    I watched the Germany game, we were the more talented side but conceded from a corner and Germany saw out the game by digging in with a strong defensive display. Another day we would have got something.

    Probably Jones in the first half. Doyle looked good when he finally came on and Saka dangerous when he was moved from left back to left wing.

    The U17's are playing currently against Poland in the final of the Syrenka Cup.
    2-2 at half-time....England were 2-0 up therefore it's of course disappointing that it's now level at half-time...all in all not really a good performance from both teams.

    Substitutes not used: A.Ramsey -> Kenneh 68, Delap -> Iling-Junior 68, Raymond -> Musiala 80 & Dobbin -> Barry 80

    No goals in the 2nd half means penalty shoot-out right now :cool:

    England wins 3-1 the penalty shoot-out (Boyce-Clarke with two penatly saves) and so again the Syrenka Cup :D

    He’s playing senior football now in The Championship so he might not be in this group for much longer.
