FC Halifax Town duo Matt Pearson and Marc Roberts both started as England C lost their crucial International Challenge Trophy clash against Turkey’s A2 side 2-0.

England needed to win both their remaining games in Group A, with their final match coming against Estonia Under 23s at the Shay next month.

But two goals from Galatasaray midfielder Emre Çolak proved decisive, with captain James Norwood sent-off for the away side.
