England U18s were held to a 2-2 draw by the Netherlands in the first game of their mini tournament in Spain.
It took an equaliser in the last minute to deny the Young Lions, who played for the majority of the game with ten men after goalkeeper Luca Ashby-Hammond was sent off after just six minutes for handling outside his area.
That meant Anthony Gordon had to be sacrificed, with Arthur Okonkwo coming on to replace Ashby-Hammond in goal.
But the Young Lions didn’t let that affect them too much and they took the lead in the 13th minute when Tyreece John-Jules converted from the penalty spot.
Four minutes later, England doubled their lead and it was a debut goal for Rochdale midfielder Daniel Adshead before the Dutch reduced the arrears through Marouan Azarkan.
