POTTERS Bar teenager Henri Lansbury was on target as England Under-19s booked their place in the final of the UEFA European Under-19s Championships.

The Three Lions had found themselves a goal down as Magaye Gueye put France ahead early on in the Olimpiyskyi Stadium in Donetsk.

However England drew level in the semi-final when Arsenal's former Chancellor's School pupil fired home from the edge of the 18-yard box before half-time.

It was the Times Territory player's third goal in three games.
