PSV Eindhoven’s U21’s have reached the semi-finals of the Premier League international cup after a narrow 1-0 win over Sunderland.

PSV confidently knocked the ball around without really testing their opponents, but ten minutes into the second half Clint Leemans fired a strike into the bottom corner to break the deadlock.

Sunderland pressed for an equaliser, but Rees Greenwood fired wide from 12 yards and PSV eventually held on thanks to some excellent defending, and good goalkeeping from Yanick van Osch.

PSV Line-Up: Van Osch, Van Vlerken, Koch, Alberto, Poulsen, Leemans, Boljevic, Paal, Bergwijn, Lundqvist, Beto da Silva
