England's U-17 footballers returned home after achieving what their senior counterparts have failed to do in 51 years. The youngsters stunned their Spanish opponents (5-2) in the final in Kolkata to win the FIFA U-17 World Cup. Inspired by Philip Foden and Callum Hudson-Odoi, who repeatedly left Spain's left-back Juan Miranda flailing, the Young Lions produced a comeback story that will be narrated by each one of the 66,684 in the stadium years after FIFA revamps its youth competitions structure.
