Crowe Wins Cap as England U17s Beat Italy
Monday, 7th May 2018 21:22
Academy right-back Dylan Crowe won his eighth England U17s cap as a half-time sub as the Young Lions came from behind to beat Italy 2-1 at Walsall’s Bescot Stadium in their second group game at the European Championships.
Alessio Riccardi put the Italians ahead on 14 but Nottingham Forest's Arvin Appiah levelled on 64 and Manchester City’s Tommy Doyle netted the winner from the penalty spot five minutes later.
Crowe, 16, who has just completed his first season as a full-time scholar at Playford Road, played the first 58 minutes of Saturday’s 2-1 opening match victory over Israel. He has previously won caps at U15 and U16 levels.
The England youngsters face Switzerland at Rotherham’s New York Stadium in their final group game next Thursday and go into the match top of the table (ITV4 6.45pm).
England U17s: Ashby-Hammond; Daley-Campbell (Crowe 46), Laird, Ogbeta, Saka, Doyle, Garner (c), Amaechi, Daly (Tulloch 55), Appiah, John-Jules (Duncan 46). Unused: Dewhurst, Alese, Dixon-Bonner, Coyle, Balogun.

The Long and Winding Decline by ElephantintheRoom
The long, slow decline in Town’s fortunes since we became part of the mysterious and opaque ‘Marcus Evans Business Empire’ has been both hugely depressing and acutely embarrassing. But if we’re honest, Town’s decline pre-dates the much-maligned Marcus Evans’s arrival by decades. Both on and off the pitch.
