England Under 17s need to bounce back from heavy Germany defeat with win over Turkey to keep European hopes alive
England Under 17s crashed to a 4-0 defeat against Germany in the European Championships and must now beat Turkey on Tuesday to have any chance of reaching the semi-finals.
A draw would be enough to also book their place at the FIFA U17 World Cup later this year.
Coach John Peacock said: ‘We have to show a lot of character to come back from this.
‘It’s in our hands and we’re looking forward to the challenge. We’ll be ready.’
Goals from Robert Labos, Lennart Thy, Kevin Scheidhauer and Mario Gotze did the damage.
