Young Southampton left-back Jake Vokins is through to the UEFA Under-17 European Championship final with England.

The Young Lions edged out Turkey 2-1 in their semi-final on Tuesday night, setting up a showdown with Spain for the title on Friday, in Croatia.

Vokins was an unused substitute for the latest match, as coach Steve Cooper named an unchanged side.

Callum Hudson-Odoi put England ahead after 11 minutes when he ran on to Jadon Sancho’s pass, and it was Sancho who then turned scorer in the 37th minute, as he finished off Phil Foden’s pass.

Kerem Kesgin scored deep into added time at the end of the first half to pull Turkey back into it, but England were able to see things out after the break.
