Preview – Football: Under-17s World Cup – England v Mexico

England Mexico

While most football coverage this week has been over the home nations trying to qualify for the World Cup, another World Cup has been going on.

The Under-17s World Cup began last week in India, and England are the only one of the home nations in the tournament. The managed to make a great start defeating Chile 4-0, thanks to two goals from Jadon Sancho who currently plays for Borussia Dortmund.

Today sees them taking on Mexico, and another victory should see England guaranteeing a spot in the knock-out stage. If not then there is always their next match which should be interesting to see, but less from a footballing perspective and more a political one, given the other team in England’s group is Iraq.

England v Mexico is on Eurosport 2 at 12.15 (kick-off 12.30).
