England Under-20’s World Cup hopes are hanging by a thread after a second-half effort from Tottenham’s Harry Kane salvaged a 1-1 draw from their second group game against Chile.

Peter Taylor’s men appeared to be heading for a defeat that would have been fatal to their hopes of reaching the knockout phase after Nicolas Castillo put the South Americans ahead from the penalty spot.

But Kane replied midway through the second half to secure another draw after Sunday’s disappointing result against Iraq.

It means England, who have not won in 17 Finals matches in this competition, will now almost certainly need to break that horrendous sequence in their final match against Egypt in Bursa on Sunday to reach the last 16.
