The England Under-19 Team continued their winning ways this afternoon with a 1-0 win over Serbia in the UEFA European U19 Championship Elite Round and Newcastle’s young striker Andy Carroll, again played the full game for the England side.
Andy Carroll – played full 90 minutes in England 1-0 win this afternoon
England U19s continued their quest to reach the European U19 Championships (to be played in July), on Wednesday afternoon, when they overcame Serbia by a single goal in Belarus.
The game was played at the Borisov Stadium, in Minsk today with an 11:30 am local KO time.
A second half goal from Reading midfielder James Henry after 56 minutes, was enough to lead Brian Eastick’s team to a second successive win in the Elite Qualifying stages after Monday’s excellent 2-0 win against Poland.

The Young England side can now ensure their place in the Finals, which are to be held in the Czech Republic this coming July, with a victory over Belarus this coming Saturday.
This is great experience for young Andy Carroll, who seems to be in his best form, and we hope England can capture their place in the upcoming finals.
In 9 games England have played so far in qualifying to get this far in the Championships, the team has won 8. The only loss was to Germany 1-0 last November, and the England side has scored 26 goals and conceded only 4 in those 9 qualifying games – not too bad at all.
And who knows, England may be favorites to win the whole thing in July.
