Kolkata: England U17 team had to delay their training today ahead of the crucial FIFA U17 game against Mexico tomorrow at the Salt Lake Stadium. The Young Lions were supposed to train at the practice pitches of the venue from 4pm but were forced to delay their scheduled practice as there was no ambulance. The team management started their training at 4:15pm once the ambulance reached the venue. Apart from the untoward incident Steve Cooper’s side looked in a jovial mood during training.

Meanwhile, the families of the Young Lions have started arriving in Kolkata. Arsenal youngster Emile Smith Rowe, who did not start against Chile, had his mother and brother attending practice at the Vivekananda Yuva Bharati Krirangan training site on Tuesday.

"I am impressed with the atmosphere here. The stadium looks fantastic. We are from London and I came to Kolkata last Friday," Smith Rowe's mother, a junior school teacher, told reporters.

Earlier, Crystal Palace midfielder Nya Kirby also had his brother by his side during training ahead of the tournament opener.

Sources close with the England team revealed that Manchester United forward Angel Gomes will also have the support of his family soon during the ensuing tournament. Gomes, United's Under-18s skipper, scored a superb free kick after coming on from the substitute's bench in the 67th minute in the game against Chile.

England won against Chile by a 4-0 margin and are tipped as one of the contenders to win the title.
