SSEWANKAMBO SETBACK AT YOUTH WORLD CUP

There was further disappointment for Chelsea Academy player Isak Ssewankambo at the FIFA Under-17 World Cup when injury forced him out of Sweden's second game of the tournament.

Having missed the opening 4-1 win over Iraq due to a thigh injury, the midfielder recovered to start against Nigeria but came off after only 15 minutes.

The young Swedes went 2-0 up early in the game but eventually drew 3-3. They are currently second in their group behind Nigeria on goals scored with the final group game against Mexico on Friday. The tournament is being held in the United Arab Emirates.

On Thursday, England Under-17s, with Dominic Solanke, Isaac Christie-Davies and Isaiah Brown in the squad, start a qualification tournament for the European Under-17 Championships. They take on Armenia in Armenia.
