Ademola Lookman struck the decisive goal as England Under-20s booked their place in the World Cup final with a 3-1 victory over Italy.

The Young Lions now face Venezuela in the final - England’s first-ever in the Under20s competition - in Suwon on Sunday (11am kick-off).
Juventus winger Riccardo Orsolini got the Azzurrini off to the perfect start, firing home from inside the penalty area with less than three minutes on the clock.
Paul Simpson’s side eventually levelled on 66 minutes when Italy goalkeeper Andrea Zaccagno wasn’t able to hold on to a cross and Dominic Solanke was on hand to tap in from close range.
Lookman, who impressed throughout with an outstanding performance, popped up with the crucial second 11 minutes later, converting with aplomb from eight yards after a deep cross, before Solanke netted another goal in the dying minutes.
