Guardiola's Reaction To Hearing About Phil Foden's Heroics

After Sergio Gomez's brace had put the European champions in front (10th, 31st), Rhian Brewster (44th), Morgan Gibbs-White (58th) and Marc Guehi (84th) scored one apiece while Phil Foden - later adjudged the Golden Ball victor for his superb display - struck a brace (69th and 88th minutes) to pull off an awesome comeback. The six out of seven games we have played out's been an incredible experience. The players were fantastic all the way through the tournament.

"We were two goals down, but my boys never played a long ball".

Guardiola said: "He asked me because we had the opportunity for him to stay here with us and maybe play against Wolves (in the Carabao Cup)".

Cooper made special mention of Calcutta and said he was returning home with great memories of the city.

"We were even in control of the game being 2-0 down. You don't win a World Cup as individuals". We need to defend better and the best way to do that will be to retain more of the ball. It's been a journey", revealed the gaffer, who further added, "It's a recognition of English football.

Earlier Brazil beat Mali 2-0 in the third-place playoff to earn a consolation after they lost to England in the semi-final. Results didn't go India U17s way but they can take massive heart out of their performances.

"The Kids are enjoying their moment".

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. They interact with the staff and show respect.

England have showed throughout the tournament though that nothing phases them, and after piling on the pressure nearly scored through Foden's header and Hudson-Odoi's superb curling effort that smacked into the post. Joel (Latibeaudiere) and Angel (Gomes), the non-playing captain picked up the trophy together without anyone telling them. We can not forget that he played at a World Cup, so England will be world champions at that age.

Striker Rhian Brewster echoed the coach.
