YOUNG GUN Phil Foden impressed against Manchester United

Foden put England ahead in the second half before putting the icing on the cake with the fifth goal in injury time to secure a monumental victory for the Young Lions, only four months after the U20s team won their own World Cup in South Korea. "The football that we played, the individual talents, the team identity we showed from being 0-2 down against run of play and win 5-3 tells something about the character", Cooper said at the post-match news conference.

The talented teenager played a starring role for the Young Lions this afternoon as he netted twice in a 5-2 win over Spain to help clinch the World Cup at that level - and his performances throughout the tournament in England have been widely praised.

Earlier Brazil beat Mali 2-0 in the third-place playoff to earn a consolation after they lost to England in the semi-final. It's the recognition of where English wanted to go. "And to do it on the biggest stage of these players" careers is so rewarding. I don't know what they are doing in the dressing room. Maybe I will be better placed tomorrow to explain when we realise what we have done.

"To be honest, I'm heartbroken because of the boys".

"They won the U17s today, the U20s (earlier in the year), and it shows that, since they have restructured the academy work and dedicated to that, you have the results".

Singapore now offers the world's most powerful passport
Other Asian countries included in the top 10 were South Korea at the 3rd spot, followed by Japan, and Malaysia at 6th place. And Singapore has been named as the country with the most powerful passport in the world in a new report.

"He's in the locker room every day with the guys - it's the best way to learn from the experienced guys that have played at a high level". Both teams have impressed so far and they already came up against each other at the European U-17 Championship. "The success of all the teams and even this squad, which has reached the final, rests with all the coaching staff and also the group of players", he said.

"I'm proud of that".

"We could not maintain that score".

Gibbs White's low shot in the first minute of a fierce-paced final in front of 66,600 fans produced a lightning reflex save from Alvaro Fernandez in the Spanish goal. "We want to have more of the ball and then take advantage of that possession to create and convert chances". The six out of seven games we have played out's been an unbelievable experience.
