England u17’s defeat Germany u17’s 2-1 in a well fought match at The New York Stadium  

In the first half chances were flowing for both sides, the first opportunity came just 7 minutes in when Curtis Jones slipped through Rayhaan Tulloch who delayed his shot and Daniel Klein saved. Minutes later James Garner’s powerful header tested the keeper but wasn’t enough to trouble him. On the 16th minute, Mason Greenwood darted in to the box pulling it back for Tulloch who’s shot was blocked on the line.

Germany were very much in the game and had their fair share of opportunities, the most notable being Ole Pohlmann’s weaving run across the face of the box on the half an hour mark, he laid off the left back Noah Katterbach who’s shot was just wide. It would remain goalless at halftime.

Substitute Bobby Duncan coming on for the injured Curtis Jones, got off to a great start as he got on the end of some neat passing and fired low and hard in to the bottom left. Duncan could’ve doubled his tally had his goal not been ruled out for offside just minutes later. It didn’t take long for Germany to reply when Fabrice Hartmann smashed home the equaliser 11 minutes later.

England took the lead 3 minutes later through second half substitute, Jack Nolan, tapped home from close range to seal the victory for the young 3 lions.
