ENGLAND TO PLAY NETHERLANDS IN U17 SEMI-FINALS

15 May 2018

FOLLOWING their 2-0 quarter-final win over Norway at Burton Albion on Sunday, England are through to the semi-finals of the U17 Euros.

They will play Netherlands in the final four at Chesterfield this Thursday evening (7pm kick-off) with tickets as low as just £1.

Goals from Bobby Duncan and Xavier Amaechi secured the win for the young lions in front of the local crowd, with more than 5,000 England fans coming out to support the youngsters.

Steve Cooper's side took an early lead through Duncan, who headed home from a pinpoint left-wing cross from Nathanael Ogbeta.

Amaechi then placed an inch-perfect finish from inside the box to the bottom-right corner to double England's lead nine minutes after the restart.

UEFA and The Football Association have made all tickets for the semi-final just £1 for all and have encouraged all fans to come out and support the young lions as they aim to reach the final at Rotherham on Sunday.

With the tournament already being a major success with combined attendances reaching over 40,000 so far, The FA have been working alongside local schools to engage children in the area.

England head coach Cooper said: "I know the people who have been managing the tournament have wanted it to be affordable for families and children, that has definitely been reflected in the crowds we've got for England matches.

"We had a fantastic turnout at our opening group game at Chesterfield. It was a brilliant atmosphere and we’re really grateful for the support.

"Hopefully we can get another strong attendance for the semi-final."

See England play either Republic of Ireland or the Netherlands at Chesterfield this Thursday in the UEFA European Under-17 Championship semi-final.

Tickets are on sale now for £1 here or at the Chesterfield FC ticket office including on the day of the game.
