Dozzell Off Injured as England U19s Thrash Germany to Reach Semi-Finals
Sunday, 9th Jul 2017 19:08

Andre Dozzell limped off in the 15th minute as England U19s thrashed Germany 4-1 in Tbilisi to top their group at the European Championships and go through to the semi-finals.


Dozzell, 18, who was making his third start of the tournament, suffered what appeared to be a hip problem and was treated by the physio twice before being replaced.

Despite having already lost another key man to injury, Chelsea defender Trevoh Chalobah, England went on to claim an impressive victory with Nottingham Forest’s Ben Brereton and Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon both netting twice.

England will play the Czech Republic in their semi-final on Wednesday, which will be live on Eurosport 1 (KO 5.15pm), while the Germans exit the tournament having finished third in the group behind Holland, who face Portugal in the other semi-final.

It is absolutely ridiculous that anybody uses this article to bash MM.
Whilst not his biggest fan and often dis-heartened by the style of play he is our Manager and I support our team. Regardless though as a supporter of the team I am worried that one of our brightest prospects has got injured and proud of the part he is playing at International level. I wish him well for a speedy recovery and hope that it does not rule him out of the tournament. On a differing point but still linked, he is in the team as a result of his development through the ITFC youth set ups and academy, his father who knows far more about football than I would guess everyone contributing is happy with his development and content that he stays at ITFC - that is the judgement I listen too. Rant over.

Agree with you LondonBlue73 regarding Andres development and progress through the ITFC youth set up and am as pleased as anyone to see him representing England at any level.
The problem is the philosophy and style of the youth set up is not translated through to the first team because McCarthy is a dinosaur and cannot/will not change his ways hence why many of us believe a younger forward thinking manager needs to be at the helm.

Carsey - I find it really difficult to be confident in what is the right way forward.
Is MM a dinosaur? or is he a victim of years of under investment in the squad and playing style reflective of the lack of talent?
Is he right in not playing Dozzell for example last season on the basis that it would/could have ruined him at a young age with the style of football around.
Whilst totally underwhelmed by what I have seen in recent years and no longer go to a game excited I think at times it is so easy to just blame MM. He did give Bush his chance and is not responsible for his injuries, he did bring in flair and skilful players like Jonny Williams, Frazer and Lawrence, when possible he has played Didzy I also accept for those successes you have Douglas, Tabb etc.
I do think he has been really unlucky that flair players have been injured so often and then we have had to dig deep, the squad assembled has left little option but I go back to that squad being his fault or Evans?
Even then with Evans at what point after Jewell and Keane wasting so much money does he say enough is enough, who else will run our club and invest. Oh to be rich enough to do it myself.
