LUFC Cook celebrates European glory

Young Leeds United midfielder Lewis Cook played his part as England lifted the European under-17`s championship in Malta against Holland.

Having started on the bench when the two sides met in the group stages last week, Cook started the final as England avenged that 2-0 defeat with a penalty shoot-out win.

Cook was replaced late in the game as England won 4-1 on penalties after the game had finished 1-1 in normal time.

England controlled the first half and they deservedly took the lead when impressive Chelsea striker Dominic Solanke scored his fourth goal of the tournament on 25 minutes.

Just as it looked like England would go in deservedly ahead, Holland equalised on the stroke of half time.

In a tight and tense second half, Cook found himself in the referee`s book as the game entered the final fifteen minutes and with a penalty shoot-out looming, Middlesbrough midfielder Callum Cooke replaced Lewis in the England midfield.

Cooke was brought on to take a penalty and he duly converted as England scored with their first four penalties.

Newcastle United goalkeeper, Fred Woodman saved the first penalty and as the pressure grew on the Dutch, two more penalties were fired wide as England celebrated.

Congratulations to Lewis and the England under-17`s team.
