England and Norway will fight it out for a place at the FIFA Women's Under-17 World Cup after the Young Lionesses were narrowly beaten 4-3 by Germany in the European Championship semi final.
The top three teams in the Euros will make it to Jordan 2016 in September, meaning England must achieve a second victory against Norway in just over a week in the third place play-off on Monday.
Vanessa Ziegler put Germany ahead just before the half hour mark but Ellie Brazil levelled two minutes later. Klara Buhl nudged the four-time winners ahead at the start of the second half, only for Alessia Russo to equalise almost immediately. But Ziegler and Tanja Pawollek added two more goals to put Germany in control.
Russo pulled one back with three minutes remaining but England could not complete the comeback.
England: Ellie Roebuck, Lois Joel, Anna Patten, Niamh Charles (sub Ella Toone 75mins), Grace Smith, Taylor Hinds, Anna Filbey (sub Laura Hooper 75mins), Georgia Stanway, Hollie Olding, Alessia Russo, Ellie Brazil (sub Hannah Cain 67mins). Subs not used: Katie Startup, Flo Allen, Lotte Wubben-Moy, Kelsey Pearson.
