RFC Sèrèsien - Stade du Pairay, Seraing, Belgium
Zak Ansah scored in added time to give England U16s a share of the spoils against Belgium.
Kenny Swain's young side, who retained the Victory Shield in November for the ninth consecutive season, were playing their first match on foreign soil and recovered from a late setback to earn a creditable draw.
The hosts had taken the lead three minutes from time through Anthony Limbombe but, refusing to be beaten, Ansah was on hand to turn home a Raheem Sterling cross and give the Young Lions a boost ahead of the Montaigu Tournament which gets underway at the end of March.Belgium
