Gareth Southgate watched on as England came from behind to ­deservedly beat Italy Under-17s 2-1 in the European Under-17 Championship. Steve Cooper’s side scored twice in nine second-half minutes to continue their winning start to top Group A after Alessio Riccardi put the Italians ahead at Walsall. England will qualify for the quarter-finals if they avoid defeat against Switzerland on Thursday at Rotherham United. The wide men were the source of England’s main threat, with Arsenal winger Xavier Amaechi threatening on three occasions and Arvin Appiah from Nottingham Forest equalising, while Rayhaan Tulloch, the substitute and from West Brom, won the penalty for the winner. Last year, the England Under-17s group won the World Cup and their successors in the age group showed they have similar tenacity. Arvin Appiah levels things up just after an hour for England Credit: Getty Images Doyle converts to seal the win Credit: Getty Images Italy took the lead in the 13th minute when Riccardi, the attacking midfielder from Roma, buried a low shot into the bottom corner from 25 yards. England spurned chances through Matthew Daly, the Huddersfield Town striker, Amaechi and Bobby Duncan, the cousin of Steven Gerrard. They equalised in the 63rd minute when Appiah lashed home from just inside the box and Tommy Doyle, the midfielder from Manchester City who is the grandson of City legends Mike Doyle and Glyn Pardoe, sealed it from the spot after Tulloch was tripped by right-back Alberto Barazzetta. Senior manager Southgate must have been impressed by the dominant wide players and England Under-17s coach Steve Cooper was delighted with their impact. England are on the cusp of the quarter-finals Credit: Getty Images “Arvin came inside and scored and Rayhaan won the penalty – that’s what you want from your attacking players,” said Cooper. Italy coach Carmine Nunziata claimed Arsenal midfielder Vontae Daley-Campbell should have been sent off after his tackle on Jean Freddi Pascal Greco led to him being substituted after 25 minutes. The midfielder went to hospital for an x-ray on his leg. But Cooper said: “That would have been harsh.” Tulloch is suspended for the Switzerland game after picking up two bookings.

They equalised in the 63rd minute when Appiah lashed home from just inside the box and Tommy Doyle, the midfielder from Manchester City who is the grandson of City legends Mike Doyle and Glyn Pardoe, sealed it from the spot after Tulloch was tripped by right-back Alberto Barazzetta. Senior manager Southgate must have been impressed by the dominant wide players and England Under-17s coach Steve Cooper was delighted with their impact. England are on the cusp of the quarter-finals Credit: Getty Images “Arvin came inside and scored and Rayhaan won the penalty – that’s what you want from your attacking players,” said Cooper. Italy coach Carmine Nunziata claimed Arsenal midfielder Vontae Daley-Campbell should have been sent off after his tackle on Jean Freddi Pascal Greco led to him being substituted after 25 minutes. The midfielder went to hospital for an x-ray on his leg. But Cooper said: “That would have been harsh.” Tulloch is suspended for the Switzerland game after picking up two bookings.

Gareth Southgate watched on as England came from behind to ­deservedly beat Italy Under-17s 2-1 in the European Under-17 Championship. Steve Cooper’s side scored twice in nine second-half minutes to continue their winning start to top Group A after Alessio Riccardi put the Italians ahead at Walsall. England will qualify for the quarter-finals if they avoid defeat against Switzerland on Thursday at Rotherham United. The wide men were the source of England’s main threat, with Arsenal winger Xavier Amaechi threatening on three occasions and Arvin Appiah from Nottingham Forest equalising, while Rayhaan Tulloch, the substitute and from West Brom, won the penalty for the winner. Last year, the England Under-17s group won the World Cup and their successors in the age group showed they have similar tenacity.

Switzerland&#39;s World Cup prospects are one of the hardest to predict, and also the most intriguing. Currently ranked No 6, the Swiss have enough talented players in the peak years of their careers to go far in Russia. Coach Vladimir Petkovic confidently suggested there was no limit to his team&#39;s potential minutes after qualifying in November. Then came the World Cup draw, with games against Brazil and Serbia putting the Swiss at risk of two quick losses and elimination within days. After that, 2014 quarter-finalist Costa Rica await to close out Group E. At least a 6-0 win over Panama in March suggested Petkovic&#39;s team can cope with a typically Central American style. World Cup 2018 | All you need to know Brazil are favourites to advance as Group E winners, and the runners-up will head to St Petersburg to play the Group F winner - likely to be defending champions Germany. Switzerland fans have waited a long time to see their expectations exceeded at a major tournament. The team appears good enough to do it this time, but it will be difficult. Here&#39;s a closer look at the Switzerland team. Coach Among World Cup coaches, Vladimir Petkovic took a less traveled path to Russia. When Joachim Low took charge of Germany in 2006, Petkovic still had a day job in a charity store while coaching lower-ranked Swiss teams. Petkovic took his big chance in 2012 to coach Lazio, and soon won the Italian Cup. He was hired for the Switzerland job only when then-Austria coach Marcel Koller could not be tempted home to succeed Ottmar Hitzfeld after the 2014 World Cup. Seen as a second choice, Petkovic took time to grow into the role of following two-time Champions League winner Hitzfeld. Now the Bosnian-born coach has asserted himself with a second straight tournament qualification, leading a team featuring several key players whose parents moved to Switzerland from the former Yugoslavia. Switzerland coach Vladimir Petkovic Credit: AP Goalkeepers Yann Sommer has been Petkovic&#39;s consistent first-choice pick since taking over from Diego Benaglio, who retired from the national team after the last World Cup. Still, the Borussia Moenchengladbach goalkeeper is under pressure from Borussia Dortmund&#39;s Roman Buerki. Petkovic plans to use pre-World Cup friendlies against Spain and Japan to make the decision. Defenders Switzerland get their experienced full-backs from Italy: Stephan Lichtsteiner of Juventus, preparing for his third World Cup, on the right and AC Milan&#39;s Ricardo Rodriguez on the left. Fast-improving Manuel Akanji staked his claim for a starting place with impressive displays in the play-offs against Northern Ireland in November. Akanji took his chance when Johan Djourou was injured, and was soon leaving Basel for Dortmund in January. Fabian Schaer formed a solid central partnership with Djourou for most of the nine straight wins in qualifying until a final 2-0 loss to group winner Portugal. World Cup predictor Midfielders A veteran midfield trio should be Valon Behrami, Granit Xhaka and Blerim Dzemaili - all with more than 60 appearances. Behrami is set for his fourth straight World Cup at the age of 33, one year younger than Lichtsteiner, as the calming statesman of the squad. Dzemaili, now back in Serie A with Bologna after a loan spell at Montreal Impact, has the most attacking role of the three. His last World Cup contribution was an unlucky double close-range miss near the end of extra time in Switzerland&#39;s 1-0 loss to Argentina in the Round of 16. World Cup 2018 venues Forwards A central striker should be flanked by Xherdan Shaqiri to the right and Admir Mehmedi on the left. At age 26 and 27 respectively, they should be peaking but neither has had ideal preparation. Shaqiri&#39;s club Stoke look doomed to relegation from the Premier League and Mehmedi, a January signing by Wolfsburg, had surgery on a foot injury in March. The identity of the central striker is perhaps the biggest question for Petkovic. Haris Seferovic, mostly out of favor at Benfica, is the latest Switzerland forward to be booed by fans. Borussia Moenchengladbach&#39;s Josip Drmic is returning from injury. Breel Embolo, the 21 year-old with Champions League-bound Schalke, has not been prolific in two injury-hit Bundesliga seasons, though he looks the most talented option. Group games Switzerland open against the best team in qualifying, Brazil, on June 17 in Rostov-on-Don. Then there is a long trip west from their base in Tolyatti, Samara, to Kaliningrad to play Serbia on June 22. Group E is completed against Costa Rica in Nizhny Novgorod on June 27.
Switzerland World Cup 2018 squad: Latest player news and injury information
Switzerland's World Cup prospects are one of the hardest to predict, and also the most intriguing. Currently ranked No 6, the Swiss have enough talented players in the peak years of their careers to go far in Russia. Coach Vladimir Petkovic confidently suggested there was no limit to his team's potential minutes after qualifying in November. Then came the World Cup draw, with games against Brazil and Serbia putting the Swiss at risk of two quick losses and elimination within days. After that, 2014 quarter-finalist Costa Rica await to close out Group E. At least a 6-0 win over Panama in March suggested Petkovic's team can cope with a typically Central American style.
