England Under-19s secured their second straight win in European U19 Championship qualifying as they beat Iceland 2-1 on Saturday.

Chelsea’s Mason Mount broke the deadlock in Bulgaria with 20 minutes remaining when he scored from a free-kick.

But Iceland levelled in the 82nd minute when Daniel Hafsteinsson managed to finish past Huddersfield goalkeeper Ryan Schofield.

Paul Simpson’s side managed to grab a winner less than a minute later as substitute Jadon Sancho set up Arsenal’s Eddie Nketiah for a close-range finish.

With two wins from their first two games of qualifying, England have secured their place in the Elite Round in March and now head into their last match of the group with Bulgaria to play for top spot, with the hosts having also won both of their games.

Elsewhere, England U17s beat Russia 2-1 in their U17 tournament thanks to goals from Clinton Mola and Mason Greenwood.

England have won both their games at the tournament and finish against Germany on Monday.
