Our two England U17 players, Adam Armstrong and Freddie Woodman are playing well for England in the European U17 tournament in Malta, and today England beat Turkey 4-1, but were helped by the dismissal of Hasan Ozkan after 40 minutes when the score was 1-1.
Adam Armstrong – scored again for England
Newcastle goalkeeper Freddie Woodman saved a first-half penalty, and Adam Armstrong had eight shots in the first half alone, but was frustrated by the brilliance of Turkey goalkeeper Tarik Çetin.
But that didn’t stop Adam getting his second goal for England in as many games in the second half after 64 minutes.
Turkey got their penalty after only 15 minutes but Woodman got down well low to his right to save Enes’s spot kick, and it was a great save from the Newcastle goalkeeper, but within a minute Woodman was beaten by Enes Unal, who gave the Newcastle goalkeeper no chance.
Chelsea striker Dominic Solanke equalized after 20 minutes for England and then Hasan Ozkan was sent off 5 minutes before the break, for a second yellow card.
England scored three goals in the second half, and they came from Chelsea’s Dominic Solanke after 49 minutes, and then one from Everton’s JonJoe Kenny after 59 minutes, followed by Adam Armstrong’s goal after 64 minutes to complete the scoring.
It gave England another win, and now they have seven goals in their first two games and have conceded one, and they will play their final group game against the Netherlands – the reigning Champions – on Thursday and that should be a good game.
Malta play the Netherlands later today, but England are currently top of Group A with 6 points from their first two games.
