England require a point from their final game to reach the semi finals of the UEFA Under-19 Championship following a superb 3-1 victory over France in Reykjavik.
France, who had gone into the tournament as favourites, started marginally the brighter of the two sides but it was England who took the lead midway through the first half as Jess Clarke's cross was nodded across goal by Ellen White and Sophie Bradley (pictured) headed in off the underside of the bar.
On the hour mark, England doubled their advantage as Natasha Dowie converted White's low cross but France were back in the game just four minutes later as substitute Marie-Laure Delie reduced the arrears.
In torrential rain, England were forced to defend doggedly as France sought an equaliser and goalkeeper Danielle Hill was in good form.
Once again, the Three Lions were to score a goal deep into injury time and it was the strike which sealed match, White adding to her two earlier assists by netting the third to finish off a counter attack.
In the other group match, Spain defeated Poland 2-0 which leaves England on top of the group and needing to avoid defeat against Spain in order to progress to the last four for the third time.
England: Danielle Hill, Chelsea Weston, Sian Larkin, Lizzie Edwards, Fern Whelan, Sophie Bradley, Jess Clarke, Danielle Buet, Ellen White, Natasha Dowie (sub Faye McCoy 84mins), Remi Allen (sub Sophie Walton 80mins). Subs not used: Jayne Eadie, Rebecca Spencer, Claire Rafferty, Kelly Lawrence, Jade Moore.
