England through to Euro U19 semis after late win over Netherlands

Goals from Chelsea starlets Dominic Solanke and Izzy Brown earned England a 2-1 win over Netherlands on Friday as the Young Lions secured their a place in the semifinals of the European Under-19 Championship in Germany with a game to spare.

PSV Eindhoven youth Sam Lammers had put the Dutch in front after only 10 minutes, capitalising after a defensive clearance deflected through to him and he slotted past Newcastle goalkeeper Freddie Woodman.

England were level in the 36th minute, a cross from Arsenal's Ainsley Maitland-Niles picking out Solanke, who turned before firing beyond PSV keeper Yanick van Osch.

The game seemed destined to be a draw until super-sub Brown scored a dramatic winner two minutes into stoppage time.

The victory leaves England, who beat France in their group opener, top with a 100 percent record -- and they spot in the semis was confirmed when France beat Croatia 2-0 in Friday's later game.

Aidy Boothroyd's England side also qualified for the 2017 Under-20 World Cup in South Korea, with the four semifinalists guaranteed a place.
