BLUNDELL'S ENGLAND BOOK EURO FINAL

Posted on: Fri 30 Aug 2013

Chelsea's Hannah Blundell was a second-half substitute as England Ladies Under-19s booked their place in the final of the European Championships courtesy of a 4-0 win over Finland.

The Three Lions will now meet France in tomorrow's final in what is a repeat of the 2010 showpiece.

Blundell was introduced as a 72nd-minute substitute in Wednesday's win, replacing Nikita Parris, although by the time the Chelsea player entered the action, the game was all but won, with England having gone it at half-time 3-0 up.

Blundell completed the full 90 minutes as Mo Marley's side opened their campaign with a goalless draw against France in Llanelli.

That game was followed by a resounding 3-0 win over Wales, in which she came on at the expense of Melissa Lawley eight minutes from time.

England sealed their place in the last four with another 3-0 victory, this time against Denmark. Blundell started the game on the bench again but replaced Lawley just after the hour mark.

France, meanwhile, secured their place in tomorrow's final, which takes place in Llanelli at 4pm, with a 2-1 win over Germany.
