England escape with 3-2 win over Mexico to reach knockouts

England escape with 3-2 win over Mexico to reach knockouts”

Jadon Sancho earned a penalty and converted it for his third goal in the tournament.

The Blues were heavily represented as England Under-17s beat Mexico 3-2 at the World Cup in India this afternoon to qualify for the knockout stages of the tournament.

It was a feast for the eyes as 40,620 people turned out at the Saltlake Stadium and witnessed the five-goal thriller with England dominating the first one-hour, followed by Mexico's second-half resurgence.

The first half was one of few clear-cut opportunities at either end, but it was England who stole the initiative six minutes before the break when Rhian Brewster curled a wonderful free-kick over the wall and into the back of the net.

The one that got away, Jadon Sancho, is also there and created a attractive goal for Foden against Mexico today.

It seemed a one-way traffic for the English youngsters but El Tri made a sensational comeback with a stunning brace by Diego Lainez (65, 72).

The Three Lions youngsters are now in India taking part in the prestigious competition, and they opened their tournament with a 4-0 win over Chile on Sunday.

Lainez was fortunate in his first goal after his powerful shot deflected off Joel Latibeaudiere, but his second goal was down to placement, as he scooped a left-footed shot across England goalkeeper Curtis Anderson and inside the far post.

Manchester United attacking midfielder Angel Gomes came off the bench and made his presence felt within a minute when he along with Sancho set up Foden to make it 2-0.

England began the match from where it left off against Chile as it pegged Mexico back defending for most of the opening session.

On the other side, highly-rated Jairo Torres found space between Timothy Emoya and Phil Foden to maze his way into the box before his pass ricocheted off Roberto De La Rosa and went out for a goal kick.
