2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup – India: MatchDay 15 – Round-up!

The 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup in India continued today, October 25 with the two semifinals taking place in Kolkata and Navi Mumbai.

England and Spain made light work of their opponents in the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup semifinals in India on Wednesday.

A hattrick from Liverpool FC’s Rhian Brewster secured the Young Lions a 3-1 victory over Brazil in front of 63,881 fans at the Saltlake Stadium in Kolkata. Brewster opened the scoring in the 10th minute, while Wesley equalised eleven minutes later. England proved to strong for the Seleção as Brewster put his side back into the lead moments before the breather. The Liverpool FC youngster added a third goal in the second half to secure England a place in their first-ever FIFA U-17 World Cup final.

Two goals from Abel Ruiz and another courtesy of Ferran Torres were enough for 2017 UEFA European Under-17 Championship winners Spain to set up a clash against England in the final. Spain registered a 3-1 win over Mali at the Dr. D.Y. Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai.

The 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup in India will take place at Kolkata’s Saltlake Stadium on Saturday evening. The 3rd place match will be also played at the same venue hours before the final.
