England have qualified for the U21 Euros after their 3-0 defeat of Albania.

The English team reached the tournament with games to spare.

Arsenal striker Folarin Balogun settled the game with two poacher’s finishes, while Aston Villa attacker Cameron Archer’s clever late flick added gloss.

“We shouldn’t take qualifying for granted,” England U21 coach Lee Carsley said.

“We’ve shown resilience and that we can control games. When a team is so deep it’s important you don’t get frustrated or force things. I want us to play attacking and be expressive, penetrate whenever we get chance.”

At international level, Balogun is eligible to play for Nigeria, England and USA.
