Preview – U-17’s World Cup Final: England v Spain

England v Spain

I never thought I would get to say that England football team are in the final of the World Cup. Admittedly it is the under-17’s World Cup, but we’ll take it.

Having defeated favourites Brazil in the semi-final, England now face Spain for the trophy. This is actually a rematch of the under-17’s Euro final, where England lost to Spain on penalties, because seemingly the English can’t take a penalty at any age.

The one man to look out for is Liverpool’s Rhian Brewster, who is not only the leading goal scorer of the tournament, but has managed to get two hat-tricks in his last two games.

England v Spain is on Eurosport 2 at 12.15, and in a last minute change of schedule is also on BBC Two at 12.20 (kick-off 12.30).
