Ross Features In England Comeback

The Dixies

See who won all the awards here.

Ross Barkley played the final 19 minutes as England mounted an impressive comeback to beat Germany on Saturday evening.

The Three Lions were 2-0 down shortly after the break, with Barkley, Phil Jagielka and John Stones all starting on the bench.

In the end, Barkley was the only Blue required but it was his fellow second-half sub Jamie Vardy who added to Harry Kane’s strike to restore parity.

Former Toffees loanee Eric Dier then headed home in the 91st minute to give Roy Hodgson’s side victory in a memorable friendly in Berlin.

Earlier, Brendan Galloway had seemed destined to make his England Under-21 debut, but was not present in Gareth Southgate’s squad against Switzerland.

The Young Lions were held to a 1-1 draw in Thun, with Chuba Akpom’s opener cancelled out by Florian Kamberi with 15 minutes to go.

The result keeps Southgate’s side top of Euro qualifying Group 9 after four games.

There was England involvement for some other Evertonians at least on Saturday, as a trio of young Blues helped the Under-19s to a 1-1 draw against Greece.

Ryan Ledson, Jonjoe Kenny and Callum Connolly all played the full 90 minutes in the Euro Elite Qualifying Round fixture, as Adam Armstrong’s first-half goal was cancelled out by Lamprou minutes later.

The result means Aidy Boothroyd’s age group must beat Spain on Tuesday to reach July’s Finals in Germany.

And Shayne Lavery played the second half for Northern Ireland Under-19s, but the forward couldn’t prevent a 1-0 defeat to Netherlands.

The result leaves Lavery’s team bottom of Euro qualifying Group 4, without a point from their opening two games and unable to progress to the Finals.
