Dozzell Unused Sub as Late Goal Sees England U19s to Euros Final
Wednesday, 12th Jul 2017 19:59
Blues midfielder Andre Dozzell was an unused sub as England’s U19s made it through to the final of the European Championships after defeating the Czech Republic 1-0 via a late, late goal in Tbilisi this evening.
Dozzell suffered a hip injury in Sunday’s 4-1 thrashing of Germany having started all three group games, but was fit enough to be included among the subs for today’s game in which the Young Lions claimed victory in the third minute of injury time via Manchester City’s Lukas Nmecha deft flick.
The 18-year-old Town academy product may well be considered ready for a return to the XI for Saturday’s final when the England youngsters will take on Portugal, who beat Holland 1-0 in the other semi-final this afternoon, in Gori (Eurosport 1, 5pm).

The first leg had been played in the three-sided Portman Road, with no North Stand. Circumstances that many fans thought contributed to our relegation that season.
