Liam Delap's sixth-minute strike ensured England beat Israel to win Group B as Ofir Haim's side finished runners-up in the section. The Young Lions will face Italy, while Israel will meet Group A winners France in the semi-finals.

Austria defeated Serbia to secure third place in Group B and set up a FIFA U-20 World Cup play-off with hosts Slovakia.

France beat a much-changed Italy side to win Group A on Friday. The Azzurrini took full advantage of an usually subdued start from Landry Chauvin's team when Cristian Volpato steered home in the 16th minute.

However, the momentum soon changed as Florent Da Silva's stunning strike and Loum Tchaouna's composed finish put Les Petits Bleus back in control. Tchaouna then struck again for his fourth of the campaign before Tayrik Arconte made sure in the 79th minute.

England secured the third last-four spot in an assured win over Serbia in Group B. Dane Scarlett's double and neat finishes from Carney Chukwuemeka and Daniel Jebbison settled a one-sided encounter.
