Solanke fires England into last four

New Liverpool signing shows what he can offer with smart England U20 finish

	Posted by Ron Carne

New signing Dominic Solanke scored the only goal of the game to send England through to the semi-finals of the Under-20 World Cup.

Three Lions boss Paul Simpson described the decision to show Onomah a second yellow as "absolutely ridiculous" with replays revealing he had accidentally stepped on Juan Aguayo's heel while dribbling past the left-back.

And England, led by their Cumbrian former Carlisle United boss Simpson, held on to their one-goal advantage, despite having Tottenham midfielder Josh Onomah sent off.

Italy, who beat Zambia after extra time earlier in the day, form the next hurdle for England to clear if they are to reach first-ever appearance in the final of the tournament. I have no idea what the referee saw.

He said: 'I'm absolutely delighted, it was a really, really tough game today against an excellent Mexico side.

The other semi-final will see Uruguay play Venezuela. I think it's safe to say that the decision to give Josh his walking papers was, to put it generously, "unfortunate".

England's under-20s last reached the final four of this competition in 1993, when a side featuring Nicky Butt and Nick Barmby lost to Ghana in the semis before beating Australia to finish in third place.

The U20 World Cup does have video replay and match officials are able to use it, but apparently the rules state that it can not be used to review second yellow card offenses, which is all sorts of dumb.
