FIFA Under-17 WC: Its England vs Spain in Finale

Brazil had too much for Germany in the quarter-final

Spain staved off a battling Mali to emerge 3-1 winners in a rip-roaring, action-packed semi-final contest to enter the summit clash of the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup at the D Y Patil Stadium, in Navi Mumbai. Mali managed to reduce the margin through Lassana N'Diaye in the 74th minute of the game. They did force England to misplace a few balls in unsafe positions but Lincoln and his teammates could not quite capitalise which is what Liverpool starlet Rhian Brewster did when he was presented with a chance in the tenth minute.

The hat-trick made Brewster the first player to have scored two hat-tricks - the first was against US in the quarter-finals - in the knockout stages of the tournament.

Mali will now face Brazil for the third-place play-off before the final at Kolkata's Salt Lake Stadium.

England went into the lead as early as the 10th minute somewhat against the run of play.

Hudson-Odoi clipped the ball across the penalty area from the left, and Brewster turned it goalwards from point-blank range.


When is England U17 v Brazil U17? Gabriel Brazao produced a fine reaction save, but the Liverpool teenager was first to the rebound.

Nketiah came off the bench to inspire a 2-1 comeback win over Norwich City, scoring both goals. Receiving a cross, Wesley struck up a fine combination with Paulinho, and then let loose a right footer which was only partially saved by Anderson.

Arsene Wenger will find it tough to keep Nketiah on the sidelines for much longer, and Jurgen Klopp should start considering giving Brewster opportunities too when he is back available. The striker, from just six yards out from goal, sent a tame header trickling wide, not even hitting the target.

As the English defence soldiered on, Brewster was on target to give a further cushion to his team. But their fate was sealed in the 77th minute as Foden slipped the ball down the line for Emile Smith-Rowe and he played into the middle for Brewster to complete his hat-trick.
