Andros Townsend vs Italy
Thursday, September 06, 2007
Andros Townsend and Dean Parrett made their mark for England Under-17s in the 2007 International U17 Tournament.
Both of our youngsters scored in the tournament as England faced Northern Ireland, Turkey and Italy.
They kicked-off in style with a 6-1 demolition of Northern Ireland with Andros scoring twice and Dean, on as a second half substitute, adding the fifth goal at Brentford's Griffin Park.
The second of the three matches saw a 1-1 draw against Turkey at Wycombe. Dean started this time and set up an effort that hit the crossbar but it needed Chelsea's Adam Phillip to secure the draw. Andros was a late substitute in the second half.
The final game resulted in a fine 3-0 win against Italy at Luton's Kenilworth Road on Sunday. Andros started again this time and opened the scoring after 20 minutes, lunging in at the far post to net from a cross from Manchester United's Cameron Stewart. Dean didn't feature in this final fixture.
