FC Halifax Town’s Matt Pearson played just under an hour as England C drew 2-2 with Czech Republic under 21’s at Woking’s Kingfield Stadium.

The Czechs were 2-0 up at half-time but had a man sent-off shortly after the restart.

Welling defender Fraser Franks scored five minutes from the end before Forest Green’s James Norwood notched a last-gasp penalty.

Town’s Dan Gardner was also called up to the squad but had to pull out due to illness.
