England are living up to their tag as the Euro U21 Championship favourites after battling past Portugal 1-0 in the quarter-finals.

The Young Lions continued their run of winning every game without conceding a goal to set up a semi-final reunion with Israel next week.

Anthony Gordon notched his second goal of the tournament after half an hour by sweeping home Morgan Gibbs-White’s cut-back.

Lee Carsley’s side were made to work more than usual having survived a swarm of second-half pressure.

But dogged defending from Levi Colwill and smart stops from goalkeeper James Trafford closed out the narrow win.

That win puts England on a collision course with Israel, who finished runners-up behind the Young Lions in the group stage having been beaten 2-0 on matchday two.
