England win U17 World Cup after incredible 5-2 comeback victory over Spain


In a thrilling finale, England overcame a two-goal deficit to thrash Spain 5-2 and lift their maiden FIFA U-17 World Cup title.

England’s under-17s came from behind to beat Spain 5-2 in a final they dominated in the eastern Indian city of Kolkata. This is the second England age-group team to win the game’s ultimate honour this year, following on from the under-20s in the summer.

After a shaky start, in which it seemed Spain would repeat their victory over England in the under-17s European Championship earlier this year, a seemingly unstoppable England comeback saw them score five goals without response.
