England Under-19s suffered a late set-back in their second game with Mexico on Monday evening.

After a bright display, it had looked as though Aidy Boothroyd’s Young Lions were set to earn a draw in their final warm-up match ahead of next month’s Euro Finals.

But a late header from the hosts meant an undeserved defeat at the Mexican national football centre, just outside Mexico City.
