Sunday, 29 Oct, 2017

What an achievement, well done to the Young Lions! "The football that we played. individual talent, team identity and the character and personality we showed".

"To be 2-0 down in a World Cup (final) and in my opinion against the run of play".

Quizzed if England beat Spain at their own game the coach replied, "England beat Spain by playing our own game". This is how we want to play, these players are being brought up with this football and England teams will play this way. "And to do it on the biggest stage of these players" careers is so rewarding.

Cooper made sure it was not only Foden who got the credit, but the whole England fraternity that worked in youth football over the years. We won the European Championship but only after drawing with them in the last minute.

But Spain's lead was doubled on 31 minutes with Cesar Gelabert finding Gomez in the box, the Barcelona forward then volleying into the far post with a goal worthy of any final.

"For example, England have Rhian Brewster, who's scoring from pretty much anywhere, while Spain have Abel Ruiz, another striker, who's extremely good in front of goal".

He said: 'It came at the ideal time, it was a fantastic cross and header.

"When I find out, I will put him in this position if he scores two goals in the final!"

"Yes, it did give the boys a bit of a boost at half-time". "We tried to defend him as a team, either with Juan [Miranda] or as a team, but he was better than us", he said. We were confident of coming back even though we were 0-2 down.

England hit back through Liverpool's Rhian Brewster, who headed in Steven Sessegnon's cross from the right close to halftime and levelled at 2-2 when Gibbs-White turned in another Sessegnon pass to finish a slick move on 58 minutes.

"There are over a billion people here, so I'm also sure that there's enough potential for India to participate at a World Cup at some point in the future", Campbell, one of the best defenders in the world during his playing days, said in an interview to FIFA.com. Players and the management were fantastic all throughout the tournament.

"He's trained with us (the senior team) every single day".
