ENGLAND have thrashed Spain to win the Under-17s World Cup.

An inspired second half performance from the Three Lions saw the boys reverse the 2-0 halftime deficit to win 5-2.

The star man for England was Manchester City’s Phil Foden who scored twice in the famous victory.

England coach Steve Cooper said: “I’m so proud of the performance. Two-nil down, we played our way, we didn’t stop, we stuck to our game plan, we stuck to our style.

“We’re building for the future and that’s the way to do it.”

It has been a great year for English football, with the Under-20 squad winning their World Cup and the Under-19 team triumphing in their European Championships.
