England Make History, Win first U-20 FIFA World CupFeatured, Latest News, Sports Sunday, June 11th, 2017
England’s 51-year wait for a global title ended on Sunday with a pulsating victory in the Under-20 World Cup final defeating Venezuela with a lone goal.
A strike by Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the first half was enough to beat a spirited Venezuela side at the Suwon World Cup Stadium in South Korea.
Goalkeeper Freddie Woodman was another hero for England, as his saved penalty ensured England lifted a World Cup for the first time since Bobby Moore held aloft the 1966 FIFA World trophy.
The Newcastle United player credited his match-winning save on preparations the England team had made for the eventuality of a penalty shoot-out.
