England Under 17s Suffer Double Defeat In Algarve

John Peacock will be devastated at England's chances being dashed to retain the trophy.

John Peacock will be devastated at England’s chances being dashed to retain the trophy.

England Under 17s suffered an opposition comeback on two occasions in consecutive days in this year’s Algarve Tournament.

They first played Germany on Friday. It all seemed to be kicking off well for England to defend their Algarve title when George Green fired them ahead.

Green almost doubled the lead but Simon Kranitz’s last ditch tackle denied him a second.

Schalke striker Donis Avdijaj scored from close range to level things up at half-time.

Timo Werner scored the winner for the Germans early in the second half – unfair perhaps of England’s performance.

Host nation Portugal were the opposition in England’s second game and their two rapid goals saw John Peacock’s side miss out on any chance to defend their title.

Reise Allassani of Crystal Palace put England in front inside the first five minutes and almost doubled the lead from close range, but was denied by a stunning save from Joel Pereira.

Kasey Palmer hit wide as England enjoyed the most of the first period.

Portugal hit back brightly and Joao Lima headed them level.

Marcio Martins of West Ham United put the Portuguese in front after 60 minutes with the winning goal.

England play their final game of the tournament on Tuesday morning against Holland.
