Nordic Tournament: England Draw Sees Them In Final

Kenny Swain’s men have a realistic chance at winning the Nordic Tournament.

England will play in Sunday’s final of the Nordic Tournament following a goalless draw with Norway.

Wins against the Faroe Islands and Finland was enough to see them top their group and play against the winner of the other group in the final, which consisted of Denmark, Sweden, Iceland and Faroe Islands Under 19s.

There was little to report on their tie with Norway as a tight Norwegian defence kept many England attacks at bay for the best part of 90 minutes.

A Bradley Fewster cross found Bamidele Alli and was almost converted to give England a lead, but his shot bounced off the crossbar.

The draw gave Kenny Swain’s men a good chance at winning the tournament as the side looked confident and tested the Norwegian goalkeeper much more than Freddie Woodman was in action in the Young Lions goal.
