Nwaneri & Lewis-Skelly shine at U17 World Cup


Arsenal academy pair, Ethan Nwaneri and Myles Lewis-Skelly, played pivotal roles in England U17's sensational start to their World Cup campaign, securing a resounding 10-0 victory over New Caledonia U17 in Indonesia.

Kicking off the match, Lewis-Skelly wasted no time leaving his mark, winning a penalty that led to Reiss-Alexander Russell-Denny converting the spot kick and propelling England into a 16th-minute lead.

After Justin Oboavwoduo doubled our lead, Lewis-Skelly continued to shine, providing an assist for Tyler Dibling's goal and extending the lead to 3-0.

The goal parade didn't stop there, with Josh Acheampong, Samuel Amo-Ameyaw, and Oboavwoduo all finding the back of the net, leaving the Young Lions comfortably ahead at 6-0 when Lewis-Skelly made way for Michael Golding at the 62-minute mark.

Nwaneri joined the action just after the hour, subbing in for Joel Ndala. Making an instant impact, he scored a spectacular curling effort from the edge of the box, pushing the score to 7-0.

An own goal further bolstered England's lead to eight, and Nwaneri showcased his playmaking flair with a pinpoint cross, setting up Harrison Murray-Campbell for the team's ninth goal. Finley McAllister sealed the deal, capping off an outstanding performance from the Young Lions.

Lewis-Skelly and Nwaneri are set to grace the field once again on Tuesday, November 14, when England U17 faces Iran U17 in their second group-stage clash.

The match will kick off at 12pm (UK time) at the Jakarta International Stadium.
