Town midfielder impresses in England U19 win over Netherlands

Andre Dozzell played the full 90 minutes as Ben Brereton’s late goal sent England to the brink of the semi-finals of the UEFA U19 European Championship with a 1-0 victory over the Netherlands.

The Town midfielder created the best chance of the first-half with a superb pass releasing Ryan Sessegnon with only the goalkeeper to beat but Justin Bijlow was swiftly alert to the danger.

England dominated throughout at a drizzly Mikheil Meskhi Stadium but had to wait until five minutes from time before getting the winner, Forest’s Brereton reacting quickest to force the ball in from close range.   

The win follows England’s 2-0 success over Bulgaria in their first group game, with the final match against Germany at the David Petriashvili Stadium on Sunday.
