England crowned Under-17 World Cup champions with victory over Spain

India has potential to play World Cup in future: Sol Campbel FIFA U-17 WC Final: Coaches cautious in approach

England: 1 Curtis Anderson (Manchester City); 18 Steven Sessegnon (Fulham), 15 Joel Latibeaudiere (capt; Manchester City), 5 Marc Guehi (Chelsea), 6 Jonathan Panzo (Chelsea); 8 Tashan Oakley-Boothe (Tottenham Hotspur), 4 George McEachran (Chelsea); 7 Phil Foden (Manchester City), 19 Morgan Gibbs-White (Wolverhampton Wanderers), 14 Callum Hudson-Odoi (Chelsea); 9 Rhian Brewster (Liverpool).

'Expectations will obviously rise now but we have a long-term plan, we'll stick to the plan. The players were fantastic all the way through the tournament. We thought this is how we want to play. A surreal feeling... I am speechless... The way they turned around the game after halftime deserves special mention and praise.

Having been shown a clip of Foden's goal during his post-match press conference following City's 3-2 win over West Brom at the Hawthorns, Guardiola was understandably beaming with joy at the midfield prospect and has tipped him for a bright future. When I came for the draw in July, I saw massive passion and excitement for the World Cup. It's the recognition of where English wanted to go. "Our players need to understand that to win the Cup they have to win tomorrow's game". They showed a lot of heart. Still early in their careers. They enjoyed the moment, didn't they?

Phil Foden has scripted an independent tale on the sides of the tournament, and thereby winning the Golden Boy award for his excellent performances, and the coach had nothing but inspiring quotes, "Foden got the Golden Ball but each of the 21 members have got a gold medal around their neck".

It also marks the first time that England have won a World Cup at this age group, and completes a near-clean sweep of trophies at youth level.

Sporting headbands, bandanas and sports gear in colours reflecting allegiance to their respective teams (red, yellow for Spain; white for England), a full house of die-hard fans threw their weight behind their favourite football stars with raucous cheers and thunderous applause. I am not the one to talk about individuals. It gave us a bit of a boost.

Striker Rhian Brewster echoed the coach.
