Brazil U17 1-3 England U17

Brazil U17 1-3 England U17

The hat-trick made Brewster the first player to have scored two hat-tricks - the first was against U.S. in the quarter-finals - in the knockout stages of the tournament.

Brewster linked up brilliantly with Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden who provided the crosses for the match victor. Phoden again showed his skills to move up and essayed a pass to substitute Emile Smith Rowe, whose measured cross was put into the net by Brewster, ensuring England's passage to the final.

It is rare to see an English player use the ball so intelligently and assuredly at such a young age; Foden picks the right option and releases the ball at the optimum moment nearly every single time he is in possession.

FIFA, the game's world governing body, has used goal-line technology in senior events but it was not on offer at the U-17 World Cup. "He's special", was Man City boss Pep Guardiola's assessment of Foden after his first-team debut in July. In the second half, he drifted over to the right and set up another good chance for Brewster that could have been finished. Full-back Wesley, in particular, looked threatening for Brazil as he continued to push forward down the right side. There were still chances in the second half but they were few and far between as England managed to get to grips with the Brazilian threat.

Here are five things Squawka learned from England's win.
