Young Lions bow out of Under-17s World Cup

England exited the FIFA Under-17s World Cup at the quarter-final stage on Sunday after they were thrashed 4-1 by Germany at the Goyang Stadium in South Korea.

It was not until the second half that the game sparked into life, with Sebastian Rudy giving Germany a 50th-minute lead with a wonderfully taken goal from the edge of the area with the outside of his boot.

Germany doubled their advantage five minutes later, Richard Sukuta-Pusa's low shot somehow finding its way throught the crowded penalty area and into the bottom corner.

Rhys Murphy gave England hope in the 65th minute when he dispossessed Nils Teixeira and fired beyond Rene Vollath.

But the game was put beyond doubt with two further goals in the final 15 minutes, first Dennis Dowidat turned well before lashing a ferocious shot home and then German skipper Toni Kroos took advantage of some slack defending to round things off four minutes from time.

England's day soured even further in the 88th minute when Ashley Chambers received his marching orders for a rash tackle on Mario Erb.
