England reach World Cup final

England 3-1 Brazil

Anyone for a World Cup final?

Go on then. You can watch it live on BBC Two on Saturday and we'll have live text commentary for you on the BBC Sport website.

We'll see you then...

'Foden man of the match for me'

Trevor Sinclair

Ex-England and Man City winger

What an achievement, great performance. I said at the start I hope England play the game and not the occasion and they certainly did, they executed what they needed to on the pitch. Brewster will rightly get the headlines for his brilliant hat-trick but Foden was the man of the match for me, he dictated the game. It's brilliant for the coach, Steve Cooper, he's had the boys away from their families for a month and the reward is a World Cup final.

England reach World Cup final

England 3-1 Brazil

Well, well, well.

Steve Cooper's side have done it, and they have another Rhian Brewster hat-trick to thank.

The Liverpool striker scored three times in the quarter-final against the USA, and has bagged all three in the semi-final against Brazil.

Plenty of smiles, hugs, high-fives from the young England players.

They'll be back on Saturday for the final to face the winners of the other semi-final between Spain and Mali.

FULL-TIME

England 3-1 Brazil

And that's it. England are into the Under-17s World Cup final!

A huge effort from the Young Lions!

England 3-1 Brazil

I think every England player is now behind the ball.

There's no need to commit themselves or do anything silly. Steve Cooper's side are defending well.

'Brazil resorting to 30-yard shots'

Trevor Sinclair

Ex-England and Man City winger

I think it shows how difficult England are to break down when Brazil are resorting to 30-yard shots. There are some tired bodies out there in the England side though and hopefully they will be able to get ready for the final on Saturday afternoon.

Re 14:13 entry...

Daniel Hiorns: Has someone been listening to a little too much 90’s Alan Hansen?

Cuz: I don't think anyone said they're all set for PL stardom right now, we just want clubs to give them a shot...

England 3-1 Brazil

England just sitting in now, keeping it tight. And who can blame them.

They're restricting Brazil to the odd long-range effort. No bother for Curtis Anderson.

Chat with Trevor Sinclair and Steve Bower

So can England win the Under-17 World Cup final? Is English football finally flourishing? And can Rhian Brewster solve Liverpool's problems?

You can pose these questions and more to Trevor Sinclair and Steve Bower, who will be LIVE after the game over on our Match of the Day Facebook page.

Watch: Brewster completes sublime hat-trick

Watch the moment Rhian Brewster completes his second hat-trick in successive World Cup games.

England 3-1 Brazil

Strong running from Emile Smith Rowe.

He skips into the Brazil half and stretches the opposition defence, before turning back and keeping the ball.

Composed.

'Brazil can't get past England's shape'

Trevor Sinclair

Ex-England and Man City winger

It seems like Brazil have accepted they are not quite good enough for this England side. I think it is the shape of England they can't get past. Foden does a lot of work off the ball, he works his socks off and that's what youngsters have got to remember, it doesn't just happen for you.

SUBSTITUTION

England 3-1 Brazil

FOUR MINUTES FROM A WORLD CUP FINAL KLAXON.

England looking to slow it down now, Philip Foden goes off after a superb display to be replaced by Nya Kirby.

England 3-1 Brazil

They're not doing bad at the minute, Daniel...

Daniel Barnes: Why does everyone think these youngsters can cut it in the Premier League after playing well in an U17 tournament? Come on guys.

'Foden at the top of his game'

Trevor Sinclair

Ex-England and Man City winger

Foden is playing at the top of his game. His balance, his ability to go either right or left is absolutely brilliant to see in a young player.

England 3-1 Brazil

Brazil look out of gas. They're running on empty, and that's testament to this England team.

The South Americans came out flying in the first half, but England's fitness and desire has shone through.

Brazil are keeping the ball in midfield, but there is a wall of white in front of them and it's proving impossible to breach.

Tom West: Great movement from Brewster. Stepped up for the big moments again. Another hat-trick, kid's on fire!

David McNaught: Just working out if Rhian Brewster can make it back to Anfield for the Huddersfield game Sat, & then return for the Final.

OutlawTeddy: Another Hat-trick for Brewster! Future is looking good for him!

England 3-1 Brazil

Well, Brazil might be the ones needing a route back into the game, but it's England who look more like adding to their tally.

Substitute Emile Smith Rowe does well to get a shot off, but that's narrowly over.

England 3-1 Brazil

Surely that's enough to take England through?

But if there is one team in world football you would not write off, it's Brazil.

That said, they've conceded more goals in this semi-final then they have all tournament.

Owen Ryan: Get Brewster up top with Mane & Salah... Pure pace!

Dave Dixon: Watching the England U17 boys from Perth, Western Australia. Come on lads! Get Gomes on Please!

Alex: Need more double-barrelled surnames in the senior side, main difference with these successful youth sides.

'Brilliant, brilliant goal'

Trevor Sinclair

Ex-England and Man City winger

That is a brilliant, brilliant goal, Brewster will get all the headlines but Foden's play is absolutely outstanding, good overlap, fantastic cross and what a composed finish. The team spirit and camaraderie is brilliant.

GOAL - England 3-1 Brazil

Rhian Brewster (76 mins)

Incredible! Rhian Brewster, take a bow, but that is a fantastic delivery from Philip Foden.

The Manchester City winger puts it on a plate for Brewster, but you have to be in the right place to score goals, and Liverpool striker Brewster does just that - a second successive hat-trick in this tournament!

England 2-1 Brazil

We're having another cooling break.

It's roasting out in Kolkata, 29 degrees today, and Fifa has brought in the idea of water breaks for players at this level. A good shout, too.

I'm hoping my colleagues at BBC Towers might want to adopt something similar - tea break anyone? Mine's milk, no sugar...

Ted Edmondson: We've got Latibeaudiere & Adarabioyo at Man City but Pep persists with Mangala & trying to buy another CB. Depressing.

Max: What do the FA do to players between youth teams and the senior team? The senior team are never this good to watch.

Tony Ruddy: If you're good enough you're old enough. This is why we need more English players in the Premier League.

England 2-1 Brazil

Timothy Eyoma is no stranger to international football at this level - he played every game in the European Championships except the final and has just got into Tottenham's Under-23s team - at the age of 17.

The Spurs youngster isn't looking to sit back though. He chases a pass into the Brazil box, but it comes off the full-back for a goal kick.

SUBSTITUTION

England 2-1 Brazil

Twenty minutes to go.

Can England hold out? They're going to throw on more fresh legs.

Steven Sessegnon makes way, Tottenham's Timothy Eyoma is the man to come on.

CTID: I'm older than a lot of the England U17s - I'm at home eating cereal & watching TV, they’re winning a World Cup semi-final.

SUBSTITUTION

England 2-1 Brazil

Change for England.

A good stint from Morgan Gibbs White and he's replaced by Arsenal man Emile Smith Rowe for the Young Lions.

'England have to sit in'

Trevor Sinclair

Ex-England and Man City winger

The game is stretched now and England are going in with only ones and twos. When you are playing against teams like Brazil they have the ability to pass through you. England have to sit in, there is no point going when you are not going in units.

CLOSE!

England 2-1 Brazil

That pressure is building...

There's no let up from Brazil at the minute, they go left this time and it's a dangerous ball whipped into the area where Lincoln is lurking.

Free header for the striker, but he nods wide.

Kenny Rea: Forget about pushing for a club place, get them in the squad for Russia '18! Have to be better than our current senior side!

Nishant: McEachran and Foden have looked different class.

England 2-1 Brazil

England can't afford to take their foot off the gas here.

Paulinho makes a yard for himself and drives and effort in from the edge of the box with very little back lift - the kind of effort you used to see from compatriot Adriano in his prime.

It's straight at Curtis Anderson, though. The Manchester City goalkeeper deals with that.

'Foden really impressing'

Trevor Sinclair

Ex-England and Man City winger

Phil Foden is really impressing with that check inside, it takes defenders out of the game and he has close control.

England 2-1 Brazil

Philip Foden has impressed today.

He cuts on to his right foot and forces Gabriel Brazao to save, but moments later it's Curtis Anderson having to palm one away!

End-to-end stuff, and every time England go close, Brazil look to counter.

England 2-1 Brazil

I tell you what, these Brazilian centre-backs might be seeing Rhian Brewster in their nightmares tonight.

He's got pace to burn, and runs the line well before being muscled out.

A nuisance, my old coach would say.

England 2-1 Brazil

That's a bit more of a patient build-up from Brazil.

The South Americans work it through Alan to the right of the box where Brenner is lurking. He fizzes in a fierce effort and it takes a deflection en route to goal - good, solid palm away by Curtis Anderson to keep that one out.
