Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    It is indeed - England have won a first Under-19 title and the celebrations have started in earnest. Goals from Easah Suliman and Lukas Nmecha have rendered Dujon Sterling's own goal moot, and the pitch is filled with celebrating English players and staff!
  • Yellow Card
    90+1
    Ramsdale (England) is booked.
    The goalkeeper is booked for timewasting as he delays taking a free-kick with England looking to run down the clock.
  • Red Card
    86
    Edun (England) is shown a second yellow card and is dismissed.
    The England midfielder has had a superb tournament and it's a shame it ends like this as a trip inside the centre circle brings his second yellow card of the evening. England will play the rest of the mach with ten men.
  • Substitution
    84
    Edwards (in) - Buckley-Ricketts (out) (England)
    A third and final change for England in normal time, with one winger replacing another. Edwards ran amok late on in the semi-final against tiring defenders; a repeat here would be most welcome for England.
