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.

Six Was the Best by SpiritOfJohn
When Kevin Beattie's book, The Beat, was published in 1998 there were a few informal signing sessions arranged. As I was a schoolboy in the 70s, Kevin was a footballing hero of mine, so I thought I would brave the crowds and get in the queue for his autograph at Brannigan's in Ipswich. My Mum was also a big fan, so we decided to get there early and wait in line.
By Any Means Unnecessary by DazC
If there's one lesson that should be learned from Ipswich's match against Brentford, it's that sometimes you should stick with what you know.
