Calum Chambers has helped England into the semi-finals of the U21 European Championships, playing the full game against Poland tonight.

Aidy Boothroyd’s side ran out 3-0 winners, with the Arsenal man playing the full 90 minutes.

Rob Holding remained on the bench throughout, as did Krystian Bielik for the Polish side. The draw for the semis has yet to be made, but England can face Portugal from Group B or Germany, Italy or the Czech Republic from Group C.

Hector Bellerin’s Spain are already through to the semi-finals.

Meanwhile, Alexis Sanchez has become Chile’s all-time leading goalscorer after netting against Germany in the Confederations Cup this evening.

He took advantage of some sloppy play from fellow Gunner Shkodran Mustafi, banging home with his left foot. It was his 38th goal for his country.

Lars Stindl equalised for the Germans as the game finished 1-1.

That brings an end to this exciting international based missive.
