England beats Spain 5-2 to win U17 World Cup

"My feeling is speechless, a little bit surreal. I can give you 21 stories about the 21 players why we won the World Cup".

England had an angle of revenge on their mind when they took the field against Spain, the team to which they lost in the UEFA U17 Championship this year.

"We were even in control of the game being 2-0 down". The breakthrough came in the 58th minute when Foden took the ball into the Spain penalty area and laid it on to Sessegnon who found Gibbs-White with plenty of space to fire the ball past Fernandez.

Cooper said: 'We are worthy winners of the tournament, the football we've played and the amount of goals we've scored. "England now has technically gifted players and we are trying to imbibe a certain style of play across all national teams". That's the way we planned the game and that's the way we played. Phil's got player of the tournament, but all the boys have got the gold medal.

Campbell turned out 73 times for the England national team between 1996 and 2007 including in three World Cups.

Sources told ESPN that fans at the bar in the team's hotel were cursing and disrespectful to women traveling in the Astros' party. Instead, Hinch had to deal with questions concerning his alleged involvement in an altercation at a team hotel bar.

Spain's coach Santi Denia was "heartbroken" after the loss, saying that his team couldn't handle England's left-hand channel where Callum Hudson-Odoi, who provided two assists, was devastating.

Incredibly, 11 minutes later, they completed the comeback, with Foden tucking in at the back post after a burst of pace sent Hudson-Odoi clear down the left flank. "We tried to defend him as a team, either with Juan [Miranda] or as a team, but he was better than us", he said. They went on to score four more, physically outclassing the Spanish. "I think it was against the run of play", Cooper said.

"Foden got the Golden Ball but each of the 21 members have got a gold medal around their neck". "Phil's a great player".

The 17-year-old, typically an attacking central midfielder, was pivotal to England's fightback in Kolkata playing in a more unfamiliar wider berth. "The first goal was extremely important for us", said the top scorer of the tournament. That is (good) for English football.

Campbell made over 400 appearances in England's Premier League for Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Portsmouth and Newcastle United. They deserve it. Showed a lot of heart. We are like a family and that should be recognized. They enjoyed the moment, didn't they?
