England overwhelmed Germany 4-1 to book a semi-final place against the Czech Republic at the European Under-19 Championship in Georgia.

In addition, they won the 2017 Toulon Tournament in June, and reached the final of the European Under-17 tournament in May.

England were also semi-finalists at the European Under-21 Championship in Poland last month before losing on penalties to Germany.

On Sunday, Chelsea's Mason Mount was involved in three of England's four goals.

Brereton and Sessegnon each have three goals in the tournament.
