Slovakia are top of Group A, two points ahead of England, after beating Poland 2-1 on Friday while the Young Lions drew their opener with holders Sweden 0-0.

It was a hard first half for the team as they conceded to Martin Chrien's header, but after the break, England showed glimpses of promise as Alfie Mawson found the equaliser and Nathan Redmond clinched the victor. But when we got on the ball I thought we moved it well, and it was just the final pass, the final cross that we didn't have.

The victor of each of the three groups qualifies automatically, with the best second-placed team also going through. And it was Mason Holgate who was sacrificed at half-time, Norwich forward Jacob Murphy replaced him and within five minutes he produced the cross that led to Mawson's equaliser.

Nathan Redmond struck the victor for England on Monday.

James, I watched the game and Pickford was excellent with his handling, never had a lot to do but was confident to help the defence. "I have got nothing but thanks for him".

We've been welcomed into the city by our hosts and I'm sure it will be a good game and a good football match.

No difference between good and bad terrorists, India tells BRICS
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said BRICS countries are united and their understanding of the fight against terrorism. Chinese President Xi Jinping sent a congratulatory letter to the 2017 BRICS Games which opened in Guangzhou on Saturday.

Having lost the first game, England knew that even a draw would mean progression would be out of their hands.

The goalscorer Mawson is developing something of a reputation in front of goal having been one of only three centre-backs to find the net four or more times in the last Premier League season.

"He's been up there on his own, he's not got his goal over the two games but I tell you what he hasn't half worked hard for the side".

He said: "It is one of those things and it is a decision from the club that has been made".

Boothroyd also responded to Sweden coach Hakan Ericson's claim the Young Lions were too direct. "It felt like a home game", he said. England has a very strong squad but I'm proud of my team because we created great pressure the last 30 minutes.
