International Challenge Trophy
Tuesday 19 May 2009
Kassam Stadium, Oxford United
You can now watch the highlights of the International Challenge Trophy Final which was held at the Kassam Stadium on Tuesday evening.
Belgium defeated the England C team 1-0 courtesy of a 64th-minute strike from Brecht Capon, but England Head Coach, Paul Fairclough, remained upbeat about the non-League game in England.
"Football is alive and kicking at the non-League level," he said after the match.
"We've got a wealth of talent coming through, but we have got to make [progress]. We're not far away. We'll have to get to grips with the technical side of the game as much as our opponents, but the future looks good."
