Arsenal forward Chuba Akpom and Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Dominic Iorfa have both admitted that their match for England’s under-21 side last night was a tough one.
The Three Lions’ under-21 side took on Switzerland in Euro 2017 qualifying, and managed to pick up a 1-1 draw in an even contest.
Hull City loanee Akpom had put England ahead with a well placed finish at the start of the first-half, but Gareth Southgate’s side were pegged back when Florian Kamberi struck.
The Three Lions were then dealt a further blow after Liverpool winger Jordon Ibe was sent off, but they managed to hold on to claim a point.
England are now three points clear in their qualifying group for Euro 2017, and they remain in a strong position to qualify.
Indeed, even though the Three Lions were unable to hold on to their advantage - neither Akpom or Iorfa appeared to be too disappointed with the result.
Tough game today against Switzerland but not a bad point in the end. https://t.co/ppoj9KthB8— Dominic Iorfa (@DominicIorfa) March 26, 2016

England’s under-21’s next match comes against Norway in September, with Akpom’s and Iorfa’s attention set to return to club matters.
Akpom’s Hull side take on Bristol City at the weekend, while Iorfa’s Wolves team face Ipswich Town.
