Victories over Denmark and Northern Ireland ensure England men's under-17s reach this summer's U17 EURO despite narrow 1-0 loss to the Netherlands

England men’s under-17s may have found themselves on the wrong side of a narrow 1-0 defeat to the Netherlands on Tuesday night but their impressive victories over Denmark and Northern Ireland last week ensured they will be one of the 16 teams at this summer’s UEFA U17 EURO.

With the group winners and seven of the eight best runners-up qualifying, the Young Lions went into this evening’s clash knowing they had already booked their place at the U17 EURO Finals in Hungary.

But the MU17s still battled hard against the Netherlands at the Nieuw Zuid in Katwijk as the two teams looked to secure top spot in elite round Group 3.

In the end, a closely fought contest would be decided by Kayden Wolff’s goal from a corner just after the half-hour mark.
