Chelsea pair Dom Solanke and Isaiah Brown combined to send England through to the European Under 17 Championship.
The duo worked well together to score England’s winner in a 2-1 victory over Italy yesterday afternoon in Czech Republic.
Brown played in Solanke for the youngster to score his second goal of the elite qualifying stage.
The other goal came from Newcastle United’s Adam Armstrong, who now finishes top scorer across the whole qualifying stage.
England join Scotland, Germany, Netherlands, Portugal, Switzerland, Turkey and host nation Malta in the draw for the final tournament, which takes place in May. The draw for the tournament will be made on 9th April.
John Peacock’s side finished their whole qualifying campaign with a 100% record, conceding only once. Their elite qualifying round ended with wins over Czech Republic, Albania and the Italians.
Peacock told TheFA.com: “I can’t praise my team enough. They have worked so hard the last few days and stuck to the game plan today.
“They’ve really listened to what we’ve had to say and I think they’ve carried it out fantastically over the three games.
“It was a poor goal for us to concede, which I’m disappointed about as it gave the Italians a lifeline and made it jittery for fifteen minutes.
“But they showed what they are about by battling back and getting a second goal.
“The head of Italian delegation came in and said that the best team in the group won and I’d agree with that.
“Overall I’m delighted for everybody in the squad and all the staff.”
