Watch the highlights as Liverpool's new signing fires England into U20 World Cup final

Dominic Solanke scored twice as England beat Italy 3-1 to set up an Under 20 World Cup final against Venezuela.

Juventus forward Riccardo Orsolini had given Italy the lead with his fifth goal of the tournament but a brace from Dominic Solanke either side of an Ademola Lookman strike sent England through.

It's the first time since 1966 that an England men's side will appear in a World Cup decider - largely thanks to the Merseyside duo.

Solanke, who has scored four goals in six games at the tournament, recently agreed a deal to join Liverpool after rejecting a new contract at Chelsea. The 19 year-old will cost Liverpool just a reported £3 million.

Lookman, meanwhile, is an up-and-coming Everton prospect. He made three Premier League appearances last season after joining from Charlton and even scored in his side's 4-0 win over Manchester City in January.

England will take on Venezuela in the Under 20 World Cup final in Korea Republic on Sunday (kick-off 11am BST).
