Doherty England's hero

Monday 29 April 2002

Fulham's Sean Doherty scored the winning goal for England's under-17 side as they beat Finland 3-2 in their opening match of the UEFA Under-17 Championships.

Finland took the lead through Mika Aaritalo. Ipswich defender Chris Hogg equalised and Mark Smyth put England into the lead before Aaritola struck again to level the scores in the 56th minute.

Then up popped Doherty to score the winner with only a few minutes remaining to give England the victory.
