25 March 2017

Young Lions make it two from two in Doha

England Under-18s followed up Wednesday’s win over Saudi Arabia with a hard-fought victory over their hosts Qatar at the Aspire Zone on Friday. George Hirst of Sheffield Wednesday put Neil Dewsnip’s Young Lions in front on 15 minutes, but they were pegged back before the interval. Tottenham Hotspur youngster Sam Shashoua scored what ultimately proved to be the winner, though the visitors did have to survive Qatar missing a penalty in the last minute.

Ellery earned his third cap during Wednesday's 2-0 win but was not involved in the matchday squad for yesterday's win. Dewsnip’s team round off trip when they meet Qatar again on Monday evening.
