"It is frustrating. We could have nicked a draw, but that is something the players have to learn from". Our mentality has got to be super strong, we cant switch off for a second. Comedy of errors New Zealand went ahead following acomedy of errors. The game also offered decent insight into England's character because they came back from a goal down twice.

"We looked like a real threat in the first half". England equalised when Callum Hudson Odoi's corner kick ricocheted off the post to the feet of Marc Guehi who promptly did the rest. They were startled with an early goal, courtesy Oliver Whyte's wonder strike from outside the box. The wily midfielder, seeing Olivier make a dash, fed a delicious through ball to his teammate, who targetted England's right corner easily.

England wasted no time in scoring the equaliser. After taking the shot, the ball landed back at him.

At the half way mark, the two sides were levelled at 1-1.

BORUSSIA Dortmund prodigy Jadon Sancho's absence yesterday raised doubts whether the star winger, who was bought by the German club from Manchester City for £10 million, will feature in the upcoming FIFA World Cup. This is ideal for a developmental player, but it is the Three Lions side that bears the brunt of this scenario.England U-17 players train at the Mumbai Football Arena, Andheri yesterday , As Reported By Mid-day.
