Brewster hat-trick vs Brazil earns England World Cup final place

A second hat-trick in as many games for the Liverpool youngster ensured that England would continue their impressive form at the lower age groups.

Liverpool youngster Rhian Brewster scored a second hat-trick in two games on Wednesday to send favourites Brazil crashing out of the Under-17 World Cup and England into their first final.

Brewster: two games, two hat-tricks

The striker, who scored three goals in the 4-1 quarter-final win over the United States, floored the South American giants in the determined 3-1 win in Kolkata.

'We are going to work hard and hopefully win,' said Brewster after the game.

Brewster linked up brilliantly with Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden who provided the crosses for the match winner. Brewster put England ahead in the 10th minute despite an attacking start by the Brazilians.

Brazil forward Wesley snatched an equaliser in the 21st minute to set up a thrilling match in front of a near capacity crowd.

Top scorer award looms

But Brewster made all the running. He put England ahead in the 39th minute, becoming the top goal scorer of the tournament with his sixth strike.

His seventh goal of the event, which is being hosted by India for the first time, came in the second half as it shut the doors on the three-time champions. The 77th minute strike was the third time unlucky for Brazil goalkeeper Gabriel Brazao, who had not let in a goal from open play in the tournament until the last-four clash.

Brazil forwards Paulinho and Lincoln created good moves but bad luck and England goalkeeper Curtis Anderson kept the three-time champions at bay.

England will play the winners of the second semi-final between Spain and Mali in Saturday's final.
