Nathaniel Chalobah says England will look to down host nation Poland at the Under 21 European Championship in their final group game.

A draw would be enough for Aidy Boothroyd's young Lions to progress, but Chalobah insists they will go for the win on Thursday.

England are 3/5 to win the match or 7/1 to secure a 2-1 victory.

The Chelsea midfielder hopes he can impress in the tournament and force his way into the senior England side, but for now his focus is on helping the U21s land the trophy.

"Not everybody makes the jump [to the seniors] but it's the target. I'm sure those who didn't get there have always tried. It's a pathway for all the players," he said, as reported by ESPN.

"It [qualification] is in our hands and I think that gives us a little bit more responsibility. I think if we take that into the game in the right way then we should be fine.

"We've got to go into the game with the mindset to still win. It's down to us, really, and I don't think it's about complacency because we've only won one game so we've just got to kick on from there now and be positive.''

England are 1212/1 to win the Under 21 European Championship outright.
