Schuurman and Solanke share scorers' prize

Both on the mark in the final, the Netherlands' Jari Schuurman and England's Dominic Solanke finished joint-leading tournament scorers with four goals apiece.

Both scorers in the final, England's Dominic Solanke and Jari Schuurman of the Netherlands finished as joint-leading marksmen at the UEFA European Under-17 Championship with four goals.

Solanke and Schuurman started Wednesday's showpiece level with four other players on three goals, but each found the net to move out on their own. The Jong Oranje midfielder's previous three efforts had come in the 5-2 win against hosts Malta on matchday two.

England forward Solanke, meanwhile, struck twice against Turkey in the group stage and once against Portugal in the semi-finals. The Chelsea FC tyro's opener in the final took his tally for the whole campaign, qualifying included, to nine, level at the top of the charts with team-mate Adam Armstrong, who did not play against the Netherlands due to an ankle injury.
