Young Lions get U20 World Cup off to winning start thanks to Spurs star Scarlett’s goal

Young Lions start to win

England started their 2023 FIFA World Cup campaign with a win, albeit a heavy loss, against Tunisia.

The North Africans appeared at the tournament for the first time since 1985 and showed off their bravery.

Matthew Cox did not have a busy evening in front of England goal but when called up he performed very well.

They will face a much tougher opponent Uruguay at the weekend but they have time to prepare for that now.

FT: England 1-0 Tunisia

England almost added ice cream late in the game when Daniel Jebbison hit the woodwork.

It looked like he had a goal thanks to his luck but his hip-footed effort went wide of the post.

The young lions dominated today’s match as most would expect but with the squad exhausted, they will only be delighted with the victory.

Balls can be added to these performances when the rest of the team flies to Argentina.
