England have booked their place in the final of the UEFA Under-21 European Championship for the first time since 2009, beating Israel 3-0 to set up a meeting with Spain on Saturday.

It was the second time in the tournament Lee Carsley's men had defeated Israel and they will now aim to win the competition for the first time since 1984.

Nottingham Forest midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White atoned for a missed penalty by heading England into the lead three minutes before half-time.

They doubled their advantage on 63 minutes through Manchester City midfielder Cole Palmer, who had also assisted the opener.

Palmer would turn provider once more, this time exchanging passes with substitute Cameron Archer and the Aston Villa forward finished emphatically late on.

The result maintains England's perfect record en route to the final, having won all five matches without conceding a goal.
