12 November 2017

Ellery Balcombe and Mads Bech Sorensen were both unused substitutes as Denmark and England's Under-19s made it two wins from two in qualifying for next summer's European Championships.

England followed up their win over Faroe Islands on Wednesday with a 2-1 success against Iceland yesterday: Chelsea's Mason Mount opened the scoring with 20 minutes to play but Daniel Hafsteinsson levelled with eight minutes to play. Arsenal's Eddie Nketiah proved to be the match-winner as he converted from close range and sent England through to the Elite Qualifying round in March. The Young Lions finish their campaign on Tuesday with a game against Bulgaria. 

Jonas Wind netted twice for Denmark as they swept San Marino aside to keep up their 100 per cent record. The striker scored twice in the opening 20 minutes with Kasper Jorgensen and Jens Odgaard on target after the break to wrap up the win. The Danes complete their campaign on Tuesday with a game against Croatia.
