Crellin features again for England U18s in another victory

Three Lions win third straight game after Belarus triumph

27 March 2018

Billy Crellin played 45 minutes for England's Under 18s as they beat Belarus 2-1 on Monday evening.

Crellin - who played 90 minutes on Friday in the 2-1 win over Argentina - played the second half as St. George's Park as his side recorded a third straight victory.

Neil Dewsnip’s side had previously seen off opposition from Qatar and Argentina in their first two games.

Ian Poveda-Ocampo of Manchester City completed an impressive week with his third goal in three games to put England ahead after 11 minutes, having previously struck against both Qatar and Argentina.

Belarus kept the Young Lions at bay until after the break, when Chelsea's Callum Hudson-Odoi doubled the advantage after 55 minutes.

The visitors made it an interesting end to the game when substitute Kirylenka Kiryl made it 2-1 in the 71st minute, but they couldn’t find an equaliser leaving Dewsnip and his players with plenty to be proud of after their week's work.
