The England Lionesses leave the U17 World Cup with heads held high after losing 3-0 to the holders Japan at the quarter final stage in their first appearance in the competition for 8 years. An early goal from Endo was not the start they were looking for and after falling behind again before the break with a goal from Ueki the writing was on the wall well before Ueki sealed their fate with a fine long range strike late on. Head Coach John Griffiths will have been pleased that many of his players have gained invaluable experience in preparing themselves to be part of the senior squad for the 2023 World Cup.
