CHERRIES midfielder Lewis Cook skippered England as they booked their place at next summer's European Under-21 Championships with a 7-0 rout of Andorra last night.

The Young Lions reached the finals in Italy and San Marino with a game to spare after topping Group Four, their seventh successive tournament qualification.

Cook provided an assist for England's second goal after his long-range shot was saved by goalkeeper Francisco Pires before Ezri Konsa tapped home the rebound.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin bagged a double, including a penalty, while Ademola Lookman, Dominic Solanke, Reiss Nelson and Christian Garcia's own goal wrapped up a dominant win in Chesterfield.

Under-21 boss Aidy Boothroyd is targetting Euro 2019 glory and said: "Whatever the tournament, we want to get to the latter stages and we want to win things.

"This group have won with the junior teams and it has been a little while since Stuart Pearce's team got to the final in 2009.

"We've qualified for Italy which is the biggest thing, to play in the European Championships and getting the boys tournament experience is what we're about."

England meet Scotland on Tuesday.
