Crowe Wins Cap as England U17s Progress to Quarter-Finals
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).

How did they go through when the Swiss gd was better?

Touch wood, we look like going from having no right backs to having an embarrassment of riches. Spence pushed by Emmanuel, with Crowe waiting his chance. Woolfman as cover.

Good point, I've looked it up and it's because Italy, England and Switzerland all finished on the same points. Therefore, only the goals in those games counted. Switzerland beat Israel 3-0, a result which wasn't taken into account, and lost 2-0 to Italy as well as beating us 1-0, giving them a goal difference of -1. England beat Italy 2-1 as well as losing 1-0 to the Swiss, hence a goal difference of zero.

Article 17 Equality of points – final tournament
If two or more teams in the same group are equal on points on completion of the group matches, the following criteria are applied, in the order given, to determine the rankings:
a. higher number of points obtained in the group matches played among the teams in question;
b. superior goal difference from the group matches played among the teams in question.

Once again, a substantial number of PL players make up the squad, but one of our Ipswich boys gets in there among them. Very few other talents from the Championship. Great credit to our Academy.

Now we’ve started to win tournaments at this level and the other young age groups we need to start to see these kids reach the top. For decades most of the players at this age group would never be heard of or barely in senior football. Crowe sounds like an exciting prospect though and he needs some first team exposure as soon as possible
