Nordic Tournament: Two Out Of Two Wins For England

England Under 17s, managed by Kenny Swain, line up against the Faroe Islands.

England Under 17s celebrated two wins out of two as they beat Faroe Islands and Finland in the Nordic Tournament this week.

They were thoroughly deserved winners in their opening game against Faroe Islands on Monday afternoon as goals from Bradley Fewster and Danny O’Brien saw a comfortable win.

Kenny Swain, who annually takes charge of this tournament, saw his side leave it late to lead the game as Fewster scored from the penalty spot.

O’Brien netted the second with only two minutes remaining.

Faroe Island’s seemed to ‘park the bus’ but were undone by the penalty. However, England always looked comfortable and assured for the victory.

Substitute Fewster gave them their victory against Finland after coming on to score a late double.

The Middlesbrough youngster scored twice in quick succession in a tight game to edge England to victory.

Alex Lehtinen cancelled out O’Brien’s opening goal in the first half.

Onuray Kose put the Fins ahead unexpectedly from the penalty spot as the second-half restarted.

Christopher Regis, of Arsenal, then sent England level once again and Fewster was able to close out the game in the second half.

England play their final game of the tournament against Norway today at 2pm.
