Welbeck and Drinkwater on the mark for England

Posted by nickogs20 on April 18, 2008

History repeated itself at Victoria Park on Wednesday night as – for the second match in succession – goals from Danny Welbeck and Daniel Drinkwater gave England U18’s a 2-0 win. Austria were the opponents this time as England attempted to maintain their unbeaten record at this age level in 07-08, and they were soon behind as Welbeck prodded home the opener after ten minutes. Drinkwater curled home a late freekick to secure victory, while Ben Amos was in net for the first half and dealt capably with the rare threats on the England goal.
