England secured their spot in the finals of the European U21 Championship for the first time since 2009 with a 3-0 semi-final victory over Israel in Georgia.

Morgan Gibbs-White atoned for an early missed penalty by heading England in front three minutes before the interval at the Batumi Arena.

Manchester City’s young attacker Cole Palmer effectively put the game beyond Israel after a lengthy VAR check for offside when he doubled England’s lead just after the hour.

Substitute Cameron Archer sealed their passage to the final with an emphatic third in the 90th minute as England maintained their flawless record to reach the final.

The Young Lions last won the competition in 1984 but extended their winning streak in the competition to five games as they eased past Israel to reach Saturday’s final, where they will play Spain, who nailed Ukraine 5-1.
