England reach Under-17 World Cup final

A hat-trick from Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster sent England into the Under-17 World Cup final with a 3-1 win over Brazil.

Steve Cooper’s side weathered Kolkata’s 29C heat and humidity, along with sustained pressure from their South American rivals, to book their place in Saturday’s final.

Brewster took his chances clinically and was assisted by the impressive Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden as the Young Lions look to follow the U20s, who won their World Cup in June.

England will play either Mali or Spain, who play at 15:30 BST, in the final.
