Three Out of Three Wins See Peacock’s Men Progress

Devante Cole grabbed two goals within three games to help England progress

England Under 17s have made it three wins out of three in Bosnia to top their European Championships First Qualifying Round group.

Devante Cole’s single strike gave them a victory against the Netherlands which saw them gain maximum points from their three fixtures.

John Peacock’s side will be in this month’s draw for the Elite Qualifying Round which will see England meet all the qualifiers as well as the seeded teams.

Both England and Holland had already secured their qualification before this fixture but were competing for the all-important first place which would give them a good advantage going into the Elite Round draw on 28th November.

England began their group stage on Wednesday with a convincing 4-0 win over a lacklustre Latvia side.

Callum Robinson, Luke Shaw, Chuba Akpom and Devante Cole scored one each to give John Peacock’s men a brilliant start.

Arsenal pair Isaac Hayden and Chuba Akpom scored the goals against the host nation, Bosnia and Herzegovina to maintain the Young Lions 100% record.

In the final game, England were under some real pressure at times from the Dutch. If the Dutch had scored it would have seen them top the group simply on goal difference, but John Peacock’s men remained strong to see off their challenge. Peacock will be ecstatic with his team as they also kept clean sheets in all three of their games at this stage.
