Leeds youngster helps England qualify for finals

Leeds United youngster Lewis Cook can look forward to the European under-17 championships this summer after helping England qualify for the finals when they topped their final qualifying group in the Czech Republic in the last week.

The Leeds United academy product played in two of England`s three elite group qualifiers as they topped their group with a 100% record.

The young midfielder played the whole game as they started their elite group qualifying with a 1-0 win over the host country Czech Republic.

Cook sat out the second game as they beat Albania 1-0 to leave them needing just one point from their final game against Italy today.

England didn`t settle for a point against the Italians, who could have beaten them to top spot with a win. Cook played 76 minutes as they beat Italy 2-1to book their place in the finals in Malta in May.

Hosts Malta, along with Switzerland, Turkey, Holland, Scotland, Germany and Portugal will join England in the finals that take place in Malta between May 9th and 21st.

The finals will see the eight teams split into two groups of four with the top two in each section booking their place in the semi-finals and England will find out whom they will face in their group when the draw is made in Valetta, Malta on April 9th.

The 17-year-old has now won 8 caps for the under-17s since making his debut against Portugal in August.

The youngster is a first year scholar at Elland Road and he has made nine appearances for the under-18 side this season scoring twice.
