"Today is a massive day, a historical event and reward for two years' hard work. The senior team have qualified for [the FIFA Women's World Cup in] China and now we've achieved this" said Mo.

"They've got guts; they've had ups and downs and come through. Norway have a good tradition at this level and we hadn't got a good record against them so we knew we had to raise our game, and we did.

"I'm absolutely delighted to be here. We only have two players with tournament experience so we are a raw group but they have that belief and getting to the final proves that."

Goals in the last five minutes of extra time by substitute Susanne Hartel and Isabel Kerchowski sent holders Germany through to the UEFA European Women's Under-19 Championship final.

Germany claimed the title 12 months ago by beating Les Bleuettes 3-0 and as they opened a two-goal lead by midway through the half with goals from Stephanie Goddard (43) and Nicole Banecki (66), the holders looked set for a similar triumph.

Marie-Laure Delie reduced the arrears within seconds of the second and then Chloé Mazaloubeaud swooped to power home Eugénie Le Sommer's free-kick with 15 minutes remaining. Delie almost grabbed a winner in regulation time, hitting the bar with excellent header, but it was Germany that was to prevail. Hartel struck on the break with penalties looming before Kerchowski completed a 4-2 triumph on the break.

England will play Germany in Sunday's Final, with the game to be shown live on Eurosport, with kick-off at 4pm GMT.
