England progress after tale of two Johnsons

England reached the quarter-finals of the UEFA European Under-16 Championship at Hungary’s expense with a 1-0 victory in front of 3,440 spectators at Huddersfield Town FC’s Alfred McAlpine stadium.

Clash of heads
A sickening clash of heads in the Hungary penalty area, which forced England forward Edward Johnson to be substituted, cast a shadow over the opening stages of this crucial Group C clash.

Long delay
After a long delay to allow for the player to be treated, both teams took a while to regain their momentum before England scored midway through the first half through Glen Johnson.

Nervous
Needing to win, England were nervous in defence of their lead and Hungary threatened to equalise in the early stages of the second half. England came the closest though with a stinging free-kick from Kris Taylor, beaten away by Hungary keeper Zoltan Kovacs.

Group winners
Despite some nervous moments England clung on and now go forward to meet Germany in the quarter-final on Sunday after finishing top of Group C.
