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).

A New Team by bbg
It was very obvious long before the end of last season we would be starting the season tomorrow with new management. However, as it gets closer to the transfer deadline next week, it is now looking possible that we could surprisingly also be seeing a team almost entirely changed from the previous year.
