It all comes to 90 minutes tonight and probably penalty shootouts. England will face Spain in the first all European nations finals in FIFA u-17 World Cup 2017.
This will be a repeat of last year European championship finals where Spain was the winner.
FIFA U-17 World Cup 2017: Can England take the revenge of European final defeat.
England lost to Spain in the European U-17 championship last year and this is a golden opportunity for England to take the revenge. England is in red-hot form, they looked a team to beat throughout the competition. They looked a complete unit, right from defense till the forward line is in form and on the basis of form England looks like having an edge. England is unbeaten in the tournament.
Spain on other hand had indifferent results, they looked class at a time while looked average the other times. FIFA U-17 world cup is not about the form or how brilliant you in the tournament, it all about how you perform on the day. Spain had luck going in their ways but if they need to stop this English team they have to be at their best.
England has been at ease to reach the finals, they won all their group stage matches, then went on to thrash The USA and Brazil to reach the finals. They had a bit of stutter against Japan but that was a just minor hiccup.
Spain is one up on England and they will have a psychological advantage on their opponents. England U-20 team recently won the FIFA U-20 World Cup and U-17 team winning the FIFA u-17 World cup will show the strength of youth development in English football.
Players To Watch out
FC Barcelona B team player Abel Ruiz has led his team from the front. The La Masia starlet has scored 6 goals but what been most impressive his leadership. He is the perfect number 9 for any team, he scores goals, he brings his wide players into the game. England will have to mark him tightly throughout the game.
Liverpool Academy player Rhian Brewster had a slow start to the tournament but since then he has scored 2 hat-tricks to sit top of the goal scoring chart. Most impressive thing about Brewster has been his positioning, he has looked calm in front of goal.
