England reached the Final of the UEFA Under-19 Championships in fine style with a convincing 3-0 victory over Norway in their semi final at Reykjavik.
Hot prospect Ellen White added to her fast growing reputation by netting a goal in each half and her Chelsea team mate Lizzie Edwards put the gloss on the win with a stunning late strike.
Norway's line up included Isabell Herlovsen, who helped her senior side reach the Euro 2005 Final as a 16-year-old, but they were swept aside by Mo Marley's side who now face Germany in the Final on Sunday.
The opening stages of the game were quite evenly matched but it was England who took the lead midway through the first half as a bad back pass from Gunhild Herregarden was seized upon by White, who coolly rounded the goalkeeper before tucking the ball home.
White went close with a dipping effort as England controlled matters, so much so that Norway failed to register a single shot on goal in the first half.
After the break, a brighter start from Norway was ended abruptly on the hour mark as White broke clear on goal before sliding the ball past Runa Barli to double her side's advantage.
With twelve minutes remaining, the result was put beyond doubt as Lizzie Edwards scored England's third with a stunning 25-yard strike to round off a memorable performance.
England: Danielle Hill, Chelsea Weston (sub Kelly Lawrence 85mins), Sian Larkin, Lizzie Edwards (sub Sophie Walton 90mins), Fern Whelan, Sophie Bradley, Jess Clarke (sub Jade Moore 89mins), Danielle Buet, Ellen White, Natasha Dowie, Remi Allen. Subs not used: Jayne Eadie, Rebecca Spencer, Claire Rafferty, Faye McCoy.
