England final bid for Joe

16 May 2017

Dons keeper features in semi-final live on Eurosport UK

Our young goalkeeper Joe Bursik will later today be aiming to help England reach the European Under-17 Championship Final.

The home-grown AFC Wimbledon talent is pictured above being put through his paces at the England training camp in Croatia, ahead of today's semi-final against Turkey.

Eurosport UK will be showing the match live (4.45 pm kick-off).

Joe has kept three clean sheets so far in the run to the last-four of the competition.

Victory today would set-up a final against either Spain or Germany and England Under-17s manager Steve Cooper says his squad will be ready for the challenge.

"It's the semi-final of the European Championship so there's going to be no easy game whoever you come up against, whether it's a defensive team or an attacking team," said Cooper. "We know bits about Turkey, but the focus will be on ourselves as it has been all season. The approach will be exactly the same and we'll be ready."

All at AFC Wimbledon wish Joe good luck in today's semi-final.
