As the second half started England seemed desperate to get the equalizer as they were pushing for one and at the 52nd minute of the game Callum Doyle scored the equalizer for the Young Lions, it was inevitable. Just after the goal, Ramsey was sent on for the English team. He provided some energy that was needed by the English team and he helped in creating more chances for the team.
