England's Under-21 side overcame a first-half deficit to beat Scotland's Under-21s 3-1 in the semifinals of the Toulon Tournament in Aubagne, France.

Aidy Boothroyd's side were trailing at half-time thanks to a first-half goal from Scotland's Mikey Johnson, but they came storming back after the break to set up a finals showdown with Mexico.

Arsenal youth Eddie Nketiah set up the equaliser for Callum Connolly early in the second half before netting a pair of sumptuous goals to put the game out of reach for Scotland.

England can win a third-straight Toulon Tournament if they beat Mexico, who topped Turkey in the other semifinal, on Saturday in the final.
