The England U-17s now know they’ll be facing a tough last 16 round test against Argentina in the U-17 World Cup in Mexico on Thursday.

Alex pair Nick Powell and Max Clayton are both expected to feature having already impressed in the group stages whilst keeper Ben Garratt is likely to settle for a place on the bench once more.

The game is scheduled for Thursday night, British time, with live coverage on one of the Eurosport channels from 9:00pm. The winner will go on to face either Germany or USA in the quarter finals of the competition.

Over on The FA website there is a blog from Max Clayton about the team’s time in Mexico and it’s well worth a read, you can see it by clicking here.

Finally, below is a video of Brighton’s Jake Caskey interviewing our own Max Clayton about the World Cup so far.
