- England became the third European nation to book an India 2017 berth

- The Young Lions join Turkey and Spain in qualifying for India 2017, with two other European spots still up for grabs
The result means Steve Cooper's side join Turkey and Spain in qualifying for October’s U-17 World Cup. Turkey overcame Hungary 1-0 in yesterday’s quarter-final, while France recorded a 3-1 victory against neighbours Spain in Varazdin.
The last semi-finalist of the UEFA U-17 European Championship will be determined later today when Germany take on the Netherlands, where another India 2017 berth will be at stake. The fifth and final European spot at India 2017 will be determined via a play-off between the best-ranked losing quarter-finalists.
