U-17 World Cup: Trickster Brewster floors USA

22 Octubre 2017

"Expect a tremendous game", the 47-year-old said.Much of the coach's expectations stem from a sharp competitive nature of the sides and he believes a US-England match never fails to entertain.The US, it would seem, have a greater claim to fame in the U-17 World Cup.

The 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup marks the end of Lindsey's extremely successful stint at the U.S. U-17 level.

England will be looking to continue their winning run at the FIFA U-17 World Cup when they take on USA in the quarterfinals in Kochi on Saturday. Josh Sargent got a consolation goal for the US in the 72nd minute.

You would think the familiarity between these two friendly nations would breed a tight game.

Dest was then sent off for injury-time foul on Brewster, who himself stepped up to convert the resultant penalty.

The game started in one direction with England trampling all over United States in triumphant fashion. At least going by history."In 1999 I was fortunate to be involved in the preparation of the team".

Brewster opened England's account when he smashed in the rebound after US goalkeeper Justin Garces blocked Foden's cross into his path. After just 11 minutes, Philip Foden did wonderfully well on the right flank to dance his way through and strike at goal where Garces managed to punch it away, only to the feet of Brewster who did the rest from close range. Those shouts had the desired effect on US as they found their rhythm and pushed England back. The goal, however, failed to affect the outcome of the match. Brewster completed his hat-trick with a stoppage-time penalty kick. Even without star Jadon Sancho - recalled by Borussia Dortmund for club duties - and Manchester United midfielder Angel Gomes, the first player born this century to debut in the Premier League and left on the bench on Saturday, this England team is as good, if not better, than anyone else left in the competition.
