England were bundled out of U20 World Cup 2-0 by Egypt last night.

England have now gone 16 matches without a win at this level and a summer that promised so much will instead trigger another bout of navel-gazing.

Coach Peter Taylor acknowledged the display was the worst of his reign, and rued the missed opportunities.

“I thought we would win tonight, to be honest, because I thought we were improving as a team,” he said.

“Unfortunately, it was our worst performance since we’ve been here, but I don’t think I’ve seen a team create as many chances and lost a game 2-0 and that’s why it’s frustrating.”

He continued: “If you don’t play as well as you can and you don’t take chances, you get punished, and that’s what happened tonight.

“Egypt showed good character to win the match tonight having lost the previous two games.

“We still feel we could have scored more goals and that’s the mistake that we made.

“Their first goal was very well taken and the second came when we were trying to get back into it.”
