England are through to the final of the UEFA European Under-17 Championships.

Newcastle goalkeeper Freddie Woodman kept his second clean sheet in three games during the tournament in Malta as the Young Lions beat Portugal 2-0 on Sunday evening.

He was relieved to see the Portuguese hit the woodwork on no less than three occasions during the first half but his defence were solid in the second period as Chelsea's Dominic Solanke and Fulham's Patrick Roberts got the goals.

Adam Armstrong, who has netted twice so far in the competition, also started but came off injured after 35 minutes.

England will now face Holland in the final after a rampant Dutch outfit defeated Scotland 5-0 in the other semi.

Magpies defender Kyle Cameron started for the Tartan Army.
