Semi-Final

KR Vollur, Reykjavic




The Chelsea striker scored a goal in either half to take England's U19s to their first ever UEFA Championship Final where they will face Germany on Sunday.

White's Chelsea team mate Elizabeth Edwards weighed in with a third with 12 minutes left as Mo Marley's side celebrate reaching the big showdown in Laugardalsvollur.

In the opening stages there was little to choose between the teams and it needed a mistake to create the deadlock as Gunhild Herregården's weak back pass was pounced upon by White. She took the ball around the goalkeeper before slotting home.

With Fern Whelan mopping up anything that broke through the England midfield, chances were at a premium for Norway and even when they did break through, they were never really able to test Danielle Hill.

Eide and Enget both forced saves but when White doubled the deficit on the hour a sizeable task became imposing, and then impossible as Edwards made it 3-0 with a stunning, 25-yard strike, to give England a historic win and set up an mouth-watgering Final against giants Germany.
