Mason played about 30 minutes, wasn't very involved.
What he did do was very good though! Came on when England were 2-1down also

Decent win in the end. Horrible pitch and toxic Turkish atmosphere. Nketiah our best player. Greenwood got about 30 minutes and showed his quality in moments. Ended up with Brewster, Nketiah and Greenwood on at the end so 3 number 9s?! Not sure where Greenwood was supposed to playing really.
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.

I think its the worst squad out of all the groups in this break though. The result makes sense considering the strengths and weaknesses of the group.
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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
