England secure U21 Euro final spot after beating Israel

England have advanced to the final of the U21 Euro after beating Israel in the semi-final.

The young Three Lions arrived at the semi-final stage with a 100 per cent record after beating the Czech Republic, Israel, Germany and Portugal without conceding a single goal.

During their first meeting with Israel in the group stage, England sealed a 2-0 win thanks to goals from Anthony Gordon and Emile Smith Rowe.

England were dominant from the start and were given an opportunity to open the scoring after a penalty was given in their favour with 13 minutes on the clock.

However, Nottingham Forest star Morgan Gibbs White was unable to convert from 12 yards as his shot failed to hit the target.

But Gibbs White was able to make amends as he gave his side the lead after 41 minutes with a brilliant looping header.

On Wednesday evening, Lee Carsley’s men were looking to reach the final for the first time since 2009.

In the second half, England doubled their lead with 63 minutes on the clock after Cole Palmer poked in a second from close range.

Palmer was made to wait after a long VAR check for possible offside but the goal was eventually given.

With one minute of normal time remaining, England made it 3-0 thanks to a neat finish by substitute Cameron Archer.

England will now face either Spain or Ukraine in the final, which will take place on Saturday afternoon.
