'If It's Football, It's Vital'

England must respond says Barkley

When the England Under-20's side kicked off their World Cup campaign in Turkey on Sunday against Iraq they probably didn't think they'd be going into their next game with only one point.

A talented England side should never be held by footballing minors such as Iraq, especially in full international tournaments and certainly not after being 2-0 up.

But that was the case at the weekend as two goals either side of half time by Conor Coady and Luke Williams were cancelled out by two Iraqi goals in the final 15 minutes, including a 93rd minute equaliser.

"We know that the U20s World Cup will be a great learning experience for everyone in the England squad. So far it has provided us only with a reminder that whatever level you are playing at, football can kick you in the teeth.' Everton midfielder Ross Barkley told The Daily Express.

He continued: "There was a bit of anger at how we had allowed a two goal lead to slip in the final 15 minutes of a match we should have won and frustration that we hadn`t taken more of our chances before that last period.

"The coach pointed out a few things to us afterwards; about concentrating and doing the basics right.

"But, really, we didn`t need telling. We should be sitting at the top of the group with three points from our first game.

"That we`re not hurts. What is important now is our response when we play Chile."


For readers in the UK, you can watch Barkley and the England Under-20's take on Chile on this evening at 6pm on British Eurosport.
