England produced a stunning result to beat Norway 3-0 and qualify for this summer's UEFA Women's Under-19 Championship Finals in Wales.
Mo Marley's side went into the match needing a victory against the group hosts to stand any chance of going through and they were given the boost they needed when Katie Zelem gave them a 36th minute with her fourth goal in three matches.
Two goals in six second half minutes then sealed matters in England's favour, Ellie Stewart doubling their lead before captain Nikita Parris wrapped up a great result with the third goal.
The news that Serbia had been beaten 4-3 by Hungary in the other game, despite leading 3-1 at one stage, confirmed England as group winners and they progress to the Finals. Norway do also join them though, they have qualified as the best runners-up.
Norway's qualification was at the expense of Scotland however, despite them running out 4-0 winners over Austria at Livingston. Caroline Weir and Zoe Ness put the Scots two ahead inside the opening twenty minutes and Weir completed her double on the half hour. Heather Richards rounded off the win with the fourth goal early in the second half but sadly it wasn't quite enough for the Scots to make it three home nations in the last eight, Denmark beating Ukraine 3-0 to confirm themselves as group winners.
It was also the end of the road for Northern Ireland as they went down to a 5-0 defeat at the hands of Finland who go through to Wales as comfortable group winners.
France, Germany and Sweden complete the line up for the Finals along with Wales, the tournament hosts. The draw will take place on Tuesday 7th May, at half time during the FA of Wales Women's Cup Final.
