ENGLAND’S Under-17s heroes produced a sensational comeback from two-nil down to win the World Cup after hammering Spain 5-2 in India.

Goals from Rhian Brewster, Morgan Gibbs-White, two from Phil Foden and another from Marc Guehi made it a fantastic night for English football, less than six months after the Three Lions Under-20s claimed the World Cup in South Korea.

England could have taken the lead within a minute in front of the 80,000 crowd in Kolkata when the lively Brewster combined with Gibbs-White but his shot was saved by Alvaro Fernandez.

Against the run of play Spain took the lead when Sergio Gomez smartly finished from close range from what looked like an offside position.

However, replays showed Three Lions full-back Steven Sessegnon played the Barcelona youngster onside for the opener.

Gomez doubled Spain’s lead with a fabulous strike on 30 minutes after good work Cesar Gelabert who pulled the ball back smartly.
