At one point, it looked England U-19 side was going to emulate the disastrous performance of the England senior team at the World Cup last month. However, an injury time strike from winger Matt Phillips helped England to earn a point from the match, and thus, setting up a semi final meeting with Spain on 27 July.

France took lead when Yannis Tafer scored in the 58th minute. England also had their chances, but could not find the back of the net. England striker Nathan Delfouneso squandered off two very good scoring opportunities.
