England won the European Under-19 Championship with a 2-1 victory over Portugal in the final in Georgia.

Aston Villa’s Easah Suliman put the Young Lions ahead before Chelsea youngster Dujon Sterling volleyed into his own net six minutes later.

However, Manchester City striker Lukas Nmecha’s goal gave England the victory.

Keith Downing’s side played with 10 men for the final nine minutes after Fulham’s Tayo Edun was sent off for a second yellow card.
