England reached the final of the Under-17 World Cup on Wednesday after sealing a magnificent 3-1 victory over Brazil.

A hat-trick from Liverpool’s Rhian Brewster, who also netted three goals in England’s 4-1 win over the United States last Saturday, has set up an intriguing final against Spain in Kolkata this weekend.

Steve Cooper’s side are now hoping to emulate England’s Under-20 side, which won the U20 World Cup back in June after defeating Venezuela in the final.

Several of England’s Under-17 side have made a name for themselves over the past couple of weeks, including the aforementioned Brewster.

The teenager is currently the top scorer at the tournament with seven goals and is now favourite to win the Golden Boot.

Phil Foden has also enhanced his burgeoning reputation at the tournament. The 17-year-old, who rose to prominence with his excellent performance for Manchester City against Manchester United in the summer, ran the show against Brazil. Check out the reaction to his performance HERE.


English football fans were buzzing on social media after this latest achievement.

All of a sudden England have groups of young players at different age groups all making an impact at tournaments.
