Albion duo set for play-off

The Argus: Jake Forster-Caskey Jake Forster-Caskey

Albion duo Solly March and Jake Forster-Caskey are hoping for play-off success with England.

The pair are in contention to face Portugal in the third-place decider at the Toulon tournament, which is being staged in Avignon tomorrow (3pm BST).

March played the full 80 minutes as Gareth Southgate’s under-21s drew 1-1 with Colombia yesterday to secure second place in their group.

Forster-Caskey also played his part as a 19th-minute substitute for the injured Josh McEachran.

Forster-Caskey had started England’s previous three group games before the squad was rotated.

It was not a vintage display by England, who led early on through Cauley Woodrow's expert finish.

The Albion pair were involved in their best efforts on goal in the second period.

March was booked for kicking the ball away in what was a feisty tussle at times.

I was not impressed at all with the performance of the team yesterday, very little playing from the back, and far too many long balls hoofed over the midfield. I don't think Butland knows what it means to roll the ball out to start the play.

Didn't see the game but earlier speculation about Gareth Southgate for the Albion job seems misplaced. Wouldn't suit our style of play at all by the sounds of it!. Hope Solly and Jake haven't picked up any bad habits playing for England. Good luck to them anyway. UTA&E
