Young Lions to face Argentina
Monday, 27 June, 2011
Table-topping England to take on South Americans on Thursday.
England U17s will take on Argentina in the Second Stage of the FIFA U17 World Cup in Mexico, following the conclusion of the Group Stage on Sunday.
John Peacock's side ensured that they topped Group C with a 2-0 victory over Uruguay on Saturday, which meant that they would face one of the best third-placed teams from another group and that turned out to be Argentina, who only won one game in Group B to progress to the final 16.
The match takes place in Pachuca, location of England's first two group games with Rwanda and Canada and the squad returned there on Sunday following their game with Uruguay in Torreon.
Oscar Garre's Argentina, who were based in Monterrey and Morelia for their first three games, lost to both France and Japan and had to rely on a 2-1 victory against Jamaica to reach this round.
The game will be shown live on FIFA.com.
