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. The combination play from Gibbs-White and Foden, and Hudson-Odoi tormented the strong outpost of the Spanish side.
Commissioner of the Bidhannagar Police Commissionerate, Gyanwant Singh told reporters that three persons were arrested from near Hyatt Hotel and the other one was arrested from near Gate No 2 of the stadium. He doubled Spain's lead, under no controversy this time, when he lashed home a left footed shot into the top corner past Curtis Anderson in England goal.
The Young Lions had a disastrous start as Sergio Gomez broke the deadlock in the 10th minute in Kolkata before doubling his personal tally with 14 minutes remaining of the first-half. We had open spaces at the back and we did have some chances.
He also congratulated India and Kolkata for playing the perfect host. The regulatory mechanism will enable FIFA to monitor the international movements and transfer market, bringing more transparency to the women's game and enhancing its level of professionalism. We are the runners up, we are Euro champions. Spain beat England in May to win the European Under-17 title.
But England didn't have to wait long for the equaliser as Gibbs-White latched on to Foden's pass and finished on 58 minutes.
In the last five matches, both the teams have not lost to any team.
The Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) strategic body approved an increase in the prize money for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia to a total amount of USD 400 million.
A riveting contest is on the cards as England scored their 3rd goal to take a 3-2 lead against Spain in the Under-17 World Cup. The Liverpool forward, who struck back-to-back hat-tricks in the quarter-final and semi-final, won the golden boot.
