Callum McManaman was again in action for England on Thursday evening, taking on Mexico in the final group game of the 2011 FIFA World Under-20 World Cup in Colombia in-front of a 15,500-strong crowd in Cartagena
From Latics site: The game finished 0-0, England’s third goalless draw of the tournament, but it could have been very different had Mexico goalkeeper Jose Rodriguez not produced a magnificent save to deny McManaman on the hour-mark.
Arriving late at the back post the Wigan Athletic star connected perfectly to volley a cross towards the bottom right corner, a certain goal denied by Rodriguez’s outstretched arm.
At the other end England had Jack Butland to thank for keeping the score-line down; getting down well to save a first-half penalty before blocking a Ulises Davila shot from close-range.
The result keeps Brian Eastick’s side in third place in Group F and currently the best third third-placed team in the group phase, four of which will advance to the final 16
