Giorgio Rasulo has been a regular at this level under Kenny Swain.

After beating the Faroe Islands in their opening Nordic Tournament encoutner, England U17s continued their 100% record thanks to a penalty shootout win over Finland yesterday afternoon.

After going a goal behind, MK Dons starlet Giorgio Rasulo netted a penalty which saw the Young Lions equalise after 76 minutes.

The tournament rules state that when a game ends in a draw, penalties will decide the victor for the purposes of group positionings. England triumphed in the shootout on this occasion, putting a smile on Kenny Swain’s face, who sees his side play Norway tomorrow evening (5pm kick off, UK time).
