Kyle Walker-Peters played whole match against Mexico, as Paul Simpson’s team claimed a 1-0 win despite Josh Onomah’s unfortunate red card
Tottenham Hotspur youngster Josh Onomah was harshly sent off, but England still managed to reach the semi-finals of the under-20 World Cup earlier this afternoon for the first time since 1993.
The Spurs midfielder received a second yellow card against Mexico in the 72nd minute in South Korea.
Onomah dribbled past his opponent and unintentionally trod on the foot of his Mexican rival.
Despite the accidental nature of the collision, referee Mohammed Abdulla Hassan pulled out a second yellow card for the England international, much to the surprise of his team-mates.

Even without Onomah, England held firm to snuff out any Mexico threat with Spurs team-mate Kyle Walker-Peters defending strongly at left-back.
