England came from two goals down to trounce Spain 5-2 and win their first Under-17 World Cup on Saturday (28 October).

Spain scored twice in the first half through Barcelona striker Sergio Gomez, and England, thanks to Golden Boot winner Rhian Brewster of Liverpool, halved the lead by half-time of a riveting final before a crowd of more than 66,000 inside Kolkata's Salt Lake Stadium.

The English, courtesy of Wolverhampton Wanderers' Morgan Gibbs-White, Chelsea defender Marc Guehi and a brace from from Manchester City's player of the tournament Phil Foden, added four more goals in the second half to add the Under-17 title to the world Under-20 crown won in South Korea earlier this year.

England also won the Under-19 European Championship during the summer and were beaten on penalties in both the final of the Under-17 European Championship and the semi-finals of the Under-21 European Championship.

Earlier in the day, Brazil beat Mali 2-0 to finish third after goals from Alan Souza and Yuri Alberto.

The final was fitting for a tournament which set a record for total attendance - 1.3 million spectators eclipsing the 1 million six years ago in Mexico - and scoring - 183 goals, 11 more than in 2013 in the United Arab Emirates.
