Late leveller denies Kelly victory

Lloyd Kelly captained England Under-20s for the second successive match as they drew 1-1 with their Czech Republic counterparts.

The Academy product produced an eye-catching performance for the Young Lions and looked extremely confident bringing the ball forward from the centre of defence, in what proved a dominant first-half display.

Arsenal youngster Eddie Nketiah deservedly broke the deadlock five minutes from the break, having had an earlier goal disallowed, when he bundled the ball over the line from close range, after the blushing Jan Siska spilled Tom Edwards’ right-wing cross.

Paul Simpson’s side looked on course to secure their second win in five days but parity was restored in the 86th minute, somewhat to England’s frustration.

Michal Sadilek played a corner short to Ladislav Krejci and his fizzing cross reached Libor Holik at the back post, who struck the underside of the crossbar with his first-timed strike, and the officials judged the ball to have bounced over the line.

Simpson’s squad will be back in action on November 19th when they host Germany at the Jobserve Community Stadium.

Kelly will now return to BS3 and prepare for Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship match at Brentford, where City will be backed by a sold-out away end.
