England held by Iraq

England were denied a first Under-20 World Cup victory in 16 years as Iraq grabbed an injury-time equaliser as the match finished 2-2 in Antalya.

Peter Taylor's men seemed sure to end that desperate statistic when Luke Williams added to Conor Coady's first-half opener.

But Ali Faez pulled one back from the spot 15 minutes from time, setting up a pulsating finale which saw Ali Adnan snatch a point for the underdogs.

England meet group favourites Chile in their second match on Wednesday.
