Fans, pundits react to England’s U17 World Cup win

England football fans have been starved of success for such a long time that you can forgive them for getting a bit carried away after their U-17 side won the World Cup on Saturday evening.

The Young Lions put on a first-class performance as they came back from two goals down to comprehensively beat Spain 5-2 and seal a second youth World Cup in the space of a few months for England after the U-20’s victory earlier this year.

It topped off a superb tournament for the England team as Liverpool starlet Rhian Brewster scored his eighth goal to earn the golden boot award and Manchester City’s Phil Foden took home the player of the tournament trophy.

Fans, pundits and former players alike were quick to congratulate Steve Cooper’s team on social media.

While some thought that Gareth Southgate’s senior team could learn something from their success.

But it was left to Stoke striker Peter Crouch to sum up perfectly how most England’s fans felt with a tweet when they beat Brazil to make it to the final.
