Adam Murray started for England U20 side against Poland, after coming on as substitute against China in the previous game in the Toulon tournament.

He had a very solid game, and came within a whisker of giving England the lead in the first half when he just failed to connect with a free-kick across the box.
I felt he was just about the best player on show, but after England had taken the lead, disaster struck when Murray was given a straight red card on 65 minutes. In truth it looked the correct decision to me as Murray lunged in with a two-footed challnge, though the Eurosport commentators felt it was harsh.

England hung on to win 1-0. Murray misses England's next game on Sunday, but would be eligible for the game against Brazil on Tuesday.
