England are the Under-17 world champions after coming from 2-0 down to beat Spain 5-2 in the final in Kolkata.

Steven Cooper’s side, who reached the final after beating Brazil 3-1 in the semis earlier this week, found themselves 2-0 down after Sergio Gomez scored twice inside the opening 31 minutes.

However, Rhian Brewster’s eighth goal of the tournament on the stroke of half-time proved vital for England, who equalised in the 58th minute through Morgan Gibbs-White.

Phil Foden then put England 3-2 up with 20 minutes remaining before Marc Guehi made it 4-2 in the closing stages.

The excellent Foden then made it 5-2 with his second of the match in the 88th minute, completing a magnificent individual performance.

Foden stole the show for England

Foden, who was also excellent in the semis, was undoubtedly the star of the show for England today.

The Manchester City starlet, who Pep Guardiola hailed after his impressive performance against Manchester United in a pre-season friendly, looked different class once again.

It was the 17-year-old’s magnificent pass that made England’s equaliser.

While his two goals weren’t bad, either…

Foden hailed on social media

English football fans, as well as former players, on social media can’t stop raving about Foden after his match-winning display…

However, the best tweet came from Foden’s Man City teammate Benjamin Mendy.

The left-back tweeted: “Phil @PhilFoden drug test needed after that game 😂😂 how good is my bro !!! 😱 #Shark“

He was then asked how good Foden could become in the future.

“Boy got something 🔥“ he replied.

You don’t need to be the next Guardiola to tell that statement is bang on the money.
