England have conquered Europe...and they did it on penalties, no less! 

The Under-17 Three Lions won the European Championship on Wednesday, topping the Netherlands on penalties 4-1 after the match.

While winning the U-17 European Championship is hardly winning the World Cup, it's still huge for the future of England's national team and, of course, it's always a big deal when an England side wins on penalties. 


YES England win the shoot-out. We are Under-17 CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE #ENGvHOL
