England Comeback From Two Goals Behind To Become Champions

England came from two goals down to defeat European champions Spain 5-2 and win their first-ever FIFA U-17 World Cup title in front of 66,684 at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan Stadium in Kolkata, on Saturday. Spain raced out to a two goal lead through a brace from Sergio Gomez. The Barcelona youngster opened the scoring just ten minutes into the match. Gomez’s second goal just after the half-hour mark. Not panicking whatsoever, England fought back to score five unanswered goals. They halved the deficit just before half-time through Brewster’s tournament-leading eighth goal. Morgan Gibbs White  made it 2-2 just before the hour mark. The Young Lions then took the lead through Philip Foden’s second goal of the tournament on 69 minutes. Any hopes of a Spain comeback ended on 84 minutes, as Marc Guehi scored England’s fourth before Foden raced in on the counter-attack for his second of the match in the late stages. England’s win follows the U-20’s success at Korea Republic 2017 earlier this year.
