Enjoying slightly better luck than their U21 counterparts – after hitting the woodwork nearly 150 times in the first-half, England’s U17 tyros eventually got their World Cup campaign in Mexico off to a winning start with a 2-0 win over Rwanda thanks to a ballsy little dink from Everton’s Hallam Hope and a bit of a corker from Liverpool prodigy Raheem Sterling…


Merseyside FTW!

Considering that Rwanda were playing their very first game at a global football tournament, altogether sterner tests against Uruguay and Canada now lie in wait for England.

    England, conquerors of Rwanda. Seriously though, well done those lads. Hope showed good commitment to chase that one down and Stirling’s goal was indeed a cracker.

  2. Tom Jones says:

    Extremely poorly edited video. The commentary wasn’t that good either but that could come from the rubbish editing of the vid.

  3. Calski says:

    Euro-sport Commentary is the 2nd most boring passionless thing in the world. 1st being Michael Owen.

  4. Sam Humphreys says:

    It’s Hallam Hope by the way.

    @tom jones– watch the video for the highlights, not the the commentary. i hope you feel better.
    the match gave me hope for englands future after watching the embarrasing 2-1 loss. couldve easily been 7-0, good match indeed.
