Under-17 semi-final schedule confirmed

Portugal will face England in the first Under-17 semi-final on Sunday, with the Netherlands playing Scotland in the other tie – both games are live on Eurosport 1.

The UEFA European Under-17 Championship semi-final lineup has been confirmed following Thursday's concluding round of group stage games.

England and the Netherlands headed into their meeting at Hibernians Stadium already assured of progressing from Group A. The Jong Oranje's 2-0 win means they top the section and will therefore face Scotland. Scot Gemmill's team went into their match against Switzerland needing only a point to rubber-stamp their qualification. They won 3-1 to book a semi with the Dutch, at 20.45CET on Sunday at the Ta' Qali National Stadium.

The first last-four fixture will be at the same venue, kicking off at 17.45CET. Portugal guaranteed first place in Group B on matchday two and defeated Germany 1-0 on Thursday, meaning they will come up against 2010 winners England.

Semi-finals, Sunday 18 May
Portugal v England (17.45CET)
Netherlands v Scotland (20.45CET)

Both games are live on Eurosport 1.
