Tom Huddlestone featured for the full 90 minutes at Wembley as England rounded off their group campaign with a 2-0 victory over Portugal to book place in the play-offs for the UEFA European Under-21 Championship.

A James Milner penalty just before half-time and a second-half goal from Gabriel Agbonlahor secured the three points for England. Loan signing Fraizer Campbell replaced Agbonlahor on 76 minutes.

The draw for the play-offs will be made at 11am on Friday 12 September in Malmo, Sweden when the ten group winners and four best runners-up enter the draw to determine the seven matches.

The play-offs will be played on a home-and-away basis on 10/11 and 14/15 October. The victors from each two-legged tie will join hosts Sweden in the competition proper from 15 to 29 June 2009.
