England fell just one goal short of making it through to the semi finals of the UEFA Women's U17 Championship Finals.
The Young Lionesses defeated Netherlands 2-0 in Kavarna, Bulgaria, but Germany's 3-1 win over Austria meant Gemma Grainger's side missed out on a place in the last four on goal difference.
England had opened their finals campaign with a 4-0 defeat by Germany, only to bounce back and edge Austria 2-1 three days later, thanks to goals from Lucy Johnson and Katie Robinson.
Robinson broke the deadlock against Netherlands a minute into the second half and Keri Matthews sealed the victory on 52 minutes.
Unfortunately for England this wasn't enough, as the Netherlands finished second behind Group B winners Germany in a three-way head-to-head tie break among the teams on six points.
Both of the top two in Group B have subsequently gone on to reach the Final, which will take place this Friday. Germany won 2-0 against Portugal, whilst the Netherlands recorded a notable 3-1 victory over holders Spain.
England: Emily Orman, Ella Morris, Maya Le Tissier, Gracie Pearse (sub Rebecca May 45mins), Lucy Johnson (sub Sophie Quirk 27mins), Melisa Filis, Ruby Grant, Charlotte Fleming, Katie Robinson, Emma Harries (sub Francesca Stables 45mins), Keri Matthews. Subs not used: Emma Bradley, Eleanor Hack, Eleanor Dale, Ellen Jones, Alisha Ware, Paige Peake.
