Potts relieved by England equaliser
Dan Potts was relieved man as England came from a goal down to secure a deserved 1-1 FIFA U20 World Cup Group E draw with Chile on Wednesday.
The Young Lions had suffered the disappointment of throwing away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Iraq in their opening Group E fixture in Antalya, Turkey, on Sunday, and looked to be in trouble when West Ham United left-back Potts brought down Manchester United forward Angelo Henriquez inside the penalty area.
Nicolas Castillo confidently converted the penalty to give the South Americans a 32nd-minute lead, but Potts' blushes were spared as England equalised on 64 minutes. Everton's Ross Barkley drove forward and found Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane, who scored low into the corner.
With Iraq beating Egypt 2-1 in the day's other Group E fixture, England go into Saturday's final round of games knowing they should progress to the last-16 with a win over the Africans, who have already been eliminated. Iraq and Chile have four points and England two, with Egypt pointless at the bottom of the standings.
