On a very cold, wet and windy night in Holland, England Under-15 shared a thrilling
3-3 draw with their hosts in which they played well and could quite easily have won the game.
England made a bright start and were in control during the early part of the match after taking a 14th minute lead through Paige Williams' 25 yard free kick. However, the Dutch hit back two minutes later from a similar situation, with a 35-yard set piece shot giving goalkeeper Leah Fish no chance.
The Dutch then took the lead just before the half hour mark, following a good move on the right and a neat turn and finish in the area from the home striker.
This time it was England's turn to hit back quickly though, as Holland failed to clear a corner and Hollie Kelsh shot home to see the teams go in level at the break.
The second half saw England enjoy the better of the play, only for a final ball to prove elusive. They eventually found their range though, as Holly Crosby split the defence to find Beth Mead in the area and she coolly rounded the goalkeeper to slip the ball home.
England were looking good for their lead but were unfortunate to concede from another long range free kick deep into added time, as the ball found its way just under the bar with Fish again having no chance in what was a cruel finish to the game.
England play Holland again on Wednesday afternoon.
England Under-15: Leah Fish, Aoife Mannion, Marie Buckley (sub Billie Brooks 63mins) (sub Sam McGarry 73mins), Lauren Haynes, Molly Cawthorn, Paige Williams, Jenna Dear (sub Carla Humphrey 66mins), Holly Crosby, Beth Mead, Katie Zelem (sub Lucy Whipp 55mins), Hollie Kelsh (sub Kiera Walsh 55mins).
