U21: Young Lions Through To Semi-Finals

England U21 manager Aidy Boothroyd, has come out to praise his team after they beat Poland 3-0 in their final group game to progress to the semi-finals of the European Under-21 Championship.

Goals from Demarai Gray, Jacob Murphy and a Lewis Baker penalty were enough for the Young Lions to see off the hosts of the competition and guarantee top spot in Group A.

He said “It's a great moment, after the first game ended in a draw, people may have looked at it with doom and gloom, but thankfully with our group of players and staff we managed to get the two wins we needed to win the group. We carried out the game plan to the tee. We scored an early goal which I think helped us and we knew the Polish were going to come flying out which they did, but I thought we played really well to get the clean sheet.”
