Chelsea wonderkid Solanke: 'Champions of Europe, we know what we are'

Chelsea's Dominic Solanke scored as England triumphed at the under-17 European Championships.

Chelsea teenager Dominic Solanke scored England's only goal in normal time as the Three Lions' young side beat Holland in the under-17 European Championship Final.

England won 4-1 on penalties after drawing 1-1 on the night, with Solanke scoring his 31st goal for club and country in all competitions.

Solanke, 16, finished the tournament as joint top goalscorer with four goal, shared with Holland's Jari Schuurman.

And the teenager made sure fans knew just how jubilant he was after the wild trophy celebrations, by sending a message which would resonate with fans of his club.

The 'Champions of Europe, We know what we are', chant became a theme for Chelsea fans to sing in 2012/13 after their Champions League win against Bayern in 2012.

Solanke's performances have been widely praised in the tournament, with clubmate Izzy Brown also impressing.

It certainly appears the FA Youth Cup winner is on his way to the top, he just needs to work his way past the queue of forwards in front of him in Chelsea's youth ranks.
