England qualified to the knockout stages of the UEFA U17 Euros with a 3-1 victory over Spain in their final group match.

Shim Mheuka gave the Young Lions an early lead in the sixth minute, skillfully finding the bottom corner with his back to the goal after a sharp turn.

La Roja levelled in the 22nd minute thanks to a brilliant individual effort from Adrian Arnucio, who beat two players before striking the top corner.

With the game tied going into the final minutes, Mikey Moore scored his fourth goal of the tournament in the 73rd minute, putting England ahead once more.

Ethan Nwaneri secured the win for Young Lions in the 85th minute, calmly finishing a one-on-one with the goalkeeper after a quick counter-attack.

Elsewhere, Portugal advanced to the quarter-finals as group winners despite suffering their first defeat of the tournament against France with a 2-1 loss.

England, Portugal, and France all finished with six points, but England and Portugal booked a spot in the next round because of their superior goal differences.

Next up, Greg Lincoln's team will face Italy in the quarter-finals on Thursday evening.
