Dominic Solanke scored a brace as England reached the final of the Fifa U-20 World Cup for the first time after coming from behind to beat Italy 3-1 on Thursday.

They will square off against Venezuela who also qualified for the final for the first time after ousting Uruguay.

The young Three Lions dominated the second half with the new Liverpool striker Solanke scoring a calm equaliser and a long-range strike.

Everton’s Ademola Lookman netted the second by tucking home a finish from six yards out on 77 minutes.
