England U17s Win The World Cup After Heroic Comeback

You wait 51 years for a World Cup then two turn up at once.

As if the England U20s winning their World Cup earlier this year wasn't good enough, England's U17s have repeated the trick after producing a stunning comeback victory to defeat Spain in the final in Calcutta, this afternoon.

Steve Cooper's Young Lions found themselves 2-0 down in the first-half against an immensely talented young Spain team, but pulled one back before half-time through prolific Liverpool prodigy Rhian Brewster.

Wolves' midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White brought the scores level before mercurial Manchester City wonderkid Phil Foden made the comeback complete when he tapped in England's third at the back post with 20 minutes remaining.

On top of that, England then extended their lead in the 83rd minute thanks to a close range effort from skipper Marc Guehi after a goalmouth scramble from a free-kick.

And to put the icing on the cake, that lad Foden came up with the goods again just moments later to make it 5-2 to the Young Lions.

What a comeback. What a performance. What a team.

Well done, lads!
