Nouble's final aim

Frank Nouble's England will play for a place in the UEFA European Under-19 Championship final when they face Spain on Tuesday evening.

Nouble has been one of his nation's star performers at the tournament in northern France, scoring twice in the opening group-stage victory over Austria before impressing in subsequent matches against Netherlands and France.

England reached the semi-finals by scoring a last-gasp equaliser against the French on Saturday evening, securing a place in the last four at the expense of the Dutch in dramatic fashion.

Having got to within 90 minutes of the final, Noel Blake's side will have to produce a superb performance to defeat Spain, who defeated Croatia, Portugal and Italy in the group-stages.

"We look forward to it with confidence, it's a big game for the chaps but we're looking forward to it," Blake told

"Spain are a very good side, make no bones about that. One of their boys has just been sold by Santander to Real Madrid for a lot of money. We know it's a difficult task but it's one we look forward to as staff and a group of players."

Tuesday's semi-final will be screened live by British Eurosport, with kick-off at 3pm UK time.

Should England reach the final, where they will face France or Croatia, Nouble will have the chance to replicate the achievement of West Ham club-mate Robert Hall, who lifted the UEFA European U17 title with England in May.
