Comical goal adds to ENGLAND's Misery

With three minutes to go, England were leading 2-1 when Quillan Roberts ventured out of his goal to take a free-kick just inside Canada's half.

He launched the ball forward and after it evaded a melee of outfield players, it took one high bounce before clearing the despairing dive of Jordan Pickford in England's goal.

ENGLAND'S week of international misery took a comical turn last night when the Under-17s conceded a late equaliser from Canada's GOALKEEPER.

The 2-2 draw gave Canada their first ever World Cup point at U-17 level.

At least the U-17 Three Lions still have something to fight for — unlike their U-21 counterparts (who got knocked out of the European Championship in Denmark earlier this month).

They exited the European Championship on Sunday having leaked two goals in the final two minutes against the Czech Republic.

England's U-17 World Cup campaign began with a 2-0 win over Rwanda and continues against Uruguay on Saturday.
