Duncan helps young England team into semi-finals

England will face Holland or Ireland in the last four on Thursday.

Bobby Duncan inspired England Under-17s into the Euro 2018 semi-finals after a 2-0 win over Norway.

The Manchester City forward, linked to Liverpool, scored the opener and set up Arsenal’s Xavier Amaechi for the second in Burton on Sunday.

They will play either Holland or Ireland on Thursday after Duncan’s 14th-minute opener and Amaechi’s cool finish.

Boss Steve Cooper won the Under-17 World Cup last summer and is on the brink of a second major title in less than a year.
