Gunners duo help England reach U17 World Cup

Myles Lewis-Skelly in action for England against the Netherlands

Ethan Nwaneri and Myles Lewis-Skelly helped England beat Switzerland at the U17 European Championships to secure their spot at the U17 World Cup later this year.

The Three Lions put the disappointment of being knocked out of the tournament by France at the quarter-final stage to rally again for their World Cup play-off against the Swiss, and a second-half recovery, aided by the introduction of Myles from the bench, saw them gain the crucial win.

The sides had gone into the break level at 1-1, but after Switzerland skipper Demir Xhemalija netted a free-kick on 52 minutes, Ethan came off for Myles just after the hour mark as Ryan Garry attempted to change his side's fortunes.

Six minutes after his introduction Myles-Skelly's dangerous cross was tucked home by Zak Lovelace, and then further quickfire goals from Michael Golding and Kadan Young saw England pull away to ensure they finished the competition on a high.

Both players ended their time in Hungary with five appearances and getting on the scoresheet once, with Ethan netting the only goal to beat Croatia in the opening match, while Myles found the net in fine style in a 4-1 win against the Netherlands in the group stage.
