Match Reaction 

England U19 boss Ian Foster: “Credit to Israel, in the first half they were by far the better side. The only positive from the first half is that it was only one. We changed a couple of things around at half-time, and I think over the course of the second 45 minutes and extra-time, we were deserved winners. I’m delighted for the players. They’ve worked really, really hard. Not only in this camp but in March and in November to get us here.”

England U19s captain Harvey Vale: “We definitely didn’t make it easy for ourselves, especially in that first half. We never stopped believing. The togetherness in this group – all 21 players, all the staff, plays a part in that. We never hide away from the fact that we know we can win games, no matter the scoreline. I feel that’s really got us to this point and that’s what has won us this tournament.”

Carney Chukwuemeka: “I’m buzzing. I didn’t know what to do when I scored. Adrenaline kicked in and I just started running. We got the win and lifted the trophy. You can’t ask for much more. You dream of times like this and for this to actually happen is a dream come true.”
