Englands open match ends with a defeat due to an own goal by Aaron Wan-Bisaka. Phil Foden had put England ahead in the second half after Dean Henderson had earlier saved Moussa Dembele's penalty. Jonathan Ikone equalised late on before Wan-Bissaka put into his own net.
Houssem Aouar then missed a second penalty after Hamza Choudhury was sent off for a rash challenge in the box."The sending-off ultimately gave us our biggest problem," manager Aidy Boothroyd told Sky Sports. "As brave and battle-hardened as the team are, it was just too much to take.
England dominated the opening moments and could have gone in front on 15 minutes when Ryan Sessegnon's cross was deflected onto the post by Ibrahima Konate before Dominic Solanke's sliding effort drifted just wide.
As it stands on the group C table, England is with no point and -1 Goal difference while France trail behind Romania with 3 points and a goal difference. This leaves Romania at the top and Croatia at the bottom of the table.
