Slattery helps England U16s to shoot-out win

By SFC Media time Mon 23 Feb International

Callum Slattery helped England Under-16s to a penalty shoot-out victory over France in the UEFA Development Tournament on Saturday.

The Saints midfielder, who turned 16 earlier this month, played the full 90 minutes for Steve Cooper’s side, who finished the game level with Les Bleus at 1-1.

Martell Taylor-Crossdale had put the Young Lions in front after 49 minutes, but a late equaliser ensured the game went to penalties at St George’s Park.

Slattery’s team triumphed in the shoot-out, with substitute goalkeeper Matthew Bates saving two French penalties.

The win wasn’t enough, however, to prevent France winning the group, although England did finish in second place with four points to their name.

Southampton’s Slattery – who wore the captain’s armband for his country in the 3-2 defeat to Switzerland earlier in the tournament – will now return to the club and rejoin Anthony Limbrick’s Under-18 side, who are preparing for the start of the play-offs in just under a fortnight.
