There were mixed fortunes for our players in World Cup qualifying on Saturday night (March 25).

Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris captained France to a 3-1 victory in Luxembourg while Belgium – featuring Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen and Mousa Dembele – needed an 89th-minute equaliser from Everton’s Romelu Lukaku to salvage a 1-1 draw at home to Greece.

Jan captained the side and played 90 minutes at the back along with Toby, while Mousa came on as a 66th-minute substitute.

Michel Vorm was on the bench for the Netherlands as they suffered a 2-0 defeat in Bulgaria. Vincent Janssen missed the game through illness.

Elsewhere, young defender TJ Eyoma scored England Under-17s’ second goal as they secured qualification for the European Championship finals with a 4-0 win over Slovenia in Bosnia.

TJ played the full game while midfielder Tashan Oakley-Boothe was introduced off the bench just after the hour mark.

Josh Onomah was an unused substitute for England Under-20s as they beat France 1-0 in Brittany.
