England U21 3 Poland U21 0: Demarai Gray stuns host with incredible goal and assit as young lions cr


England reached the semi-finals of the European Under-21 Championship for the first time since 2009 by comfortably beating 10-man Poland to finish top of Group A.

Demarai Gray opened the scoring early on with a long-range effort before substitute Jacob Murphy tapped in.

Poland rarely threatened as their defender Jan Bednarek was sent off late on for tripping Tammy Abraham in the box.

Lewis Baker converted the resultant penalty to complete the win.

The victory against the hosts means England top the standings with seven points.

The young Lions will not know their semi-final opponents until the completion of the group stage on Saturday.

They will play either Portugal from Group B or Germany, Italy or the Czech Republic from Group C.

There are only three groups at the tournament - with the three winners each progressing along with the best-placed runners up. Who England play depends on who claims the spot as the best runner-up.
