Agony For England Under-20s

Everton's quintet heading home after Egypt defeat.

Agony For England Under-20s

Everton's five England Under-20s players are heading home after the Three Lions crashed out of the World Cup with a 2-0 defeat against Egypt on Saturday.

Defenders John Stones and Luke Garbutt, plus midfielder Ross Barkley, started the final Group E fixture in Bursa, Turkey - a game which had presented a golden chance for Peter Taylor's side to reach the last-16.

Indeed, victory would have assured England's place in the next phase and it looked more likely than not after a dominant first-hour display.

But disaster struck when Trezeget netted from just inside the box with 12 minutes remaining.

And with Peter Taylor's side chasing the game, they got caught on the break in injury-time, allowing Hassan Ahmed to confirm a frustrating England exit.

Egypt, who also head out, had lost against both Chile and Iraq in their first two games but leapfrogged the Three Lions, who ended up bottom of the group following two earlier draws.

Defeat though was harsh on the Everton trio, with Barkley in particular catching the eye as a host of England opportunities went begging.

Another Blue, Chris Long, made a 15-minute cameo off the bench but midfielder John Lundstram had to settle for the role of unused substitute.

The players will now return to Merseyside before commencing pre-season training at Finch Farm next month.

Victor TayCome on Young Lions, learn from the experience and come back as better players. Work hard and try to push the hand of Martinez as far as the first team is concerned.
