'Let's celebrate this!'

England win Under 17 World Cup

Danny Mills

Ex-England defender

They have to go on and build on this – make sure this is not the pinnacle of their careers. They want to be Premier League and England stars of the future, they have to build on this to get to the top. We have two World Cup-winning teams – this is unprecedented! It needs to be celebrated more.

They have proved they are winners. Hopefully managers will see they can cope with pressure to win matches.

'Epic England!'

England win Under 17 World Cup

Trevor Sinclair

Ex-England and Man City winger

Epic scenes! They scored the most goals, conceded the least and that shows they deserved to win it , which they did in style!

'They played with freedom'

England win the U17 World Cup

Danny Mills

Ex-England defender

The goal before half-time was crucial. It gave them fresh legs, and they had a real go at Spain. Foden was exceptional, and is an absolute talent. They got behind the Spanish defence, like we wanted them to. We often talk about England’s mentality, they looked down but they played with freedom and expressed themselves.

'Incredible achievement'

Trevor Sinclair

Ex-England and Man City winger

It’s an incredible achievement – savour it, soak it up and go away and build a career. That’s what these lads must do.

Foden's goals

Foden brace makes it 5-2 to England

Phil Foden speaking to BBC Sport: "We knew were capable of coming back, that we had to play our football and come out firing in the second half."

Here come the players to get their medals and lift the trophy. What a moment!

Phil Foden has been named the player of the tournament.

'We took Spain to the cleaners!'

Paul Simpson

England Under-20 manager

Outstanding! The second half performance showed such character and I am delighted for everybody. We took Spain to the cleaners in the second half.

Back to the day job...

Well done City and well done young England on becoming World Champions. Joel and Phil get yourselves home, we’ve got a game on Wednesday!

'Give the lads a chance at club level'

Paul Simpson

England Under-20 manager

The whole game has to join together and give these players a focus and give them an opportunity. We have shown they can compete in their age groups at world level, and they must be given a chance down the line.

'That's the way to do it!'

England coach Steve Cooper speaking to BBC Sport before being engulfed by his players: "I am just so proud, we were 2-0 down and we played our way out, we didn’t stop, stuck to our style – and that’s the way to do it."

England 5-2 Spain

The whole squad run over to the same corner of the stadium where they celebrated those second-half goals. I presume there are friends and family down there. What a night in Kolkata!

Coach Steve Cooper also deserves a heap of praise because his work has been exemplary.

'Foden is player of the tournament'

England 5-2 Spain

Trevor Sinclair

Ex-England and Man City winger

What a pass it was to Foden, who is surely the player of the tournament – the displays, the performance, the grit, and what a finish. What real resolve these players have shown!

GOAL - England 5-2 Spain

Phil Foden

IN THE BAG NOW!

Wow. Ball over the top, Phil Foden's touch is superb, he's into the area and he flashes a shot through the keeper.

Again the whole squad pile into the corner. And why not?

Foden brace makes it 5-2 to England

England 4-2 Spain

Trevor Sinclair

Ex-England and Man City winger

Wow! How selfless from Latibeaudiere, he could have gone for glory but it’s his central defensive partner who has got it. A fantastically worked goal.

'Immense England'

England 4-2 Spain

Paul Simpson

England Under-20 manager

They have been immense, they have shown such resilience and what a comeback this has been. It's not luck, they deserve it and they still have the energy to make it even more emphatic.

GOAL - England 4-2 Spain

Marc Guehi

IS THAT THE WORLD CUP?

The free-kick is chipped in, England captain Joel Latibeaudiere heads it across, Jonathan Panzo can't steer it in but Marc Guehi has all the time in the world, all the time in the World Cup final. to flip it home.

Pile on again with the whole squad.

Marc Guehi scores England's fourth

YELLOW CARD

England 3-2 Spain

Callum Hudson-Odoi has skinned Mateu Jaume all day and the full-back now chops his man down cynically. In the book.

England looking comfortable. That'll tear it...

SUBSTITUTION

England 3-2 Spain

Spain right-back Mateu Jaume drives into space, danger here - no, poor shot sliced well wide.

Spanish coach Santiago Denia was warned by the referee about 10 minutes ago for being too animated. He hasn't calmed down. How could you?

Abel Ruiz then shoots wide. Breathe.

England 3-2 Spain

Drinks break. I need a stiff one.

There are some tired legs out there. Chance for a few changes?

Nobody wants to come off in a World Cup final.

'Keeper must be careful'

England 3-2 Spain

Trevor Sinclair

Ex-England and Man City winger

Great play and good composure from Steve Sessegnon, but Curtis Anderson must be careful going for those crosses.

England 3-2 Spain

Callum Hudson-Odoi toasts Spain down the left once more, winning a corner and geeing up the crowd in the process. Phil Foden then cracks another shot at the keeper after a cute reverse ball.

England 3-2 Spain

OFF THE LINE!

not good from England keeper Curtis Anderson as he comes for, and misses a corner. It's nodded back across and Steven Sessegnon clears off the line!
