Hammers Star For England Under-20s

ANTON Ferdinand and Nigel Reo-Coker have helped England Under-20's reach the Semi-finals of the Toulon Tournament.

Both Hammers played for 90 minutes in the 1-0 defeat against Portugal.  Nigel Reo-Coker scored the third goal in the final group game, a 3-0 win over Korea.  England were playing with confidence and they looked like they wanted to make amends for unluckily losing to Portugal at the weekend. 

Reo-Coker won praise for an excellent performance in the centre of midfield.  After Portugal's 2-0 win over Tunisia, England will have to settle for second place in the group and will now face France in the semi-finals on Wednesday, who won all three of their Group A matches.
