Friday, 11th May 2018 00:58
Academy right-back Dylan Crowe played the full 80 minutes and won his ninth England U17s cap as the Young Lions were beaten 1-0 by Switzerland at Rotherham’s New York Stadium on Thursday evening but still progressed to the quarter-finals of the European Championships.
Felix Mambimbi scored the game’s only goal in first-half injury time but the England youngsters, who had beaten both Israel and Italy 2-1 in their previous two matches, pipped the Swiss to second place in the group on goal difference behind Italy.
England will face Norway at Burton Albion’s Pirelli Stadium in their quarter-final tie on Sunday evening (KO 6pm).
Crowe, 17, who has just completed his first season as a full-time scholar at Playford Road, has previously won caps at U15 and U16 levels.
England U17s: Ashby-Hammond (Fulham), Crowe (Ipswich Town), Laird (Manchester United), Alese (West Ham United), Appiah (Nottingham Forest), Anjorin (Chelsea) (Daly (Huddersfield Town) 57), Garner (c) (Manchester United), Doyle (Manchester City) (Dixon-Bonner (Liverpool) 13), Amaechi (Arsenal), Saka (Arsenal), Balogun (Arsenal) (Duncan (Unattached) 52). Unused: Dewhurst (Sheffield United), Daley-Campbell (Arsenal), Ogbeta (Manchester City), Coyle (Arsenal), John-Jules (Arsenal).

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.
