What he did do was very good though! Came on when England were 2-1down also
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.

Australia vs South Korea played 3-3...Australia have won the penalty shoot-out.
Table (before the last matchday)
4) South Korea--1--4-5
England will play their next and last match against South Korea on Tuesday.
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.
Apparently the final will be streamed on a Polish site.
The same formation against Kosovo at home

The U20's have won 1-0 against Switzerland in Basel in the Elite League.
I couldn't watch the full match but i think England deserved the win because they were the better side and have had more shots on goal (Well the most were "baby shoots" ).

1-0 Tauer 25 (https://www.ran.de/fussball/u21/video/1-0-dfb-junioren-fuehren-gegen-england-clip)
The U21's are 1-0 up against Kosovo....Foden with the goal after 25 minutes.
I wanna wake up from this 5-3-2 nightmare
At least our boy Greenwood is now on the pitch.
That was a superb goal saving tackle from Aarons. Hopefully he’s not hurt too badly.
All this talent should be better than this.
Foden again and makes it 2-0.
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.
Best player/players in your opinion?
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.
Not suprised about that.
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.

No goals in the 2nd half means penalty shoot-out right now
England wins 3-1 the penalty shoot-out (Boyce-Clarke with two penatly saves) and so again the Syrenka Cup
Finland vs Norway 1-4
Romania vs Georgia 2-1
Switzerland vs Austria 1-0
Poland vs England 2-2, 1-3 penalty shoot-out
Your boy Jude Bellingham won the "Player of the Tournament" award
He’s playing senior football now in The Championship so he might not be in this group for much longer.
