Nordic - Draw In Second Group Game

England's U17s were held to a one all draw in today's second group game of the Nordic Tournament against Finland.

Having secured a five one victory on the opening day against Iceland, we have continued our hopes of qualifying from the group by picking up another point in the second game in 24 hours.

The lads will now recover and have a day off ahead of the final group game against Sweden on Thursday.

A fantastic Todd Cantwell effort on his debut start helped us to the one all draw, but despite the effort, possession and desire on display from the team only 18 or so hours since we were last in action, we simply weren't as clinical or ruthless in front of goal this time round.

Finland did take the lead in the match after the half hour mark, and despite chances falling to both teams, they will feel they should've doubled their advantage shortly after before we then found the net ourselves to level the scores.

England were improved in the second half showing, but not enough to get our noses in front.

Following full time a penalty shoot out was held and Finland came out victors in that, but the shoot out will only come into play in order to determine group finish placings after the three games should their be a points tie.

Sweden next and a victory would see England qualify and progress through to the Final of the tournament which takes place on Saturday.
