Rhian Brewster helped England U17s seal back-to-back U17 World Cup wins on Wednesday, with the teenager opening the scoring with a sublime free-kick in a 3-2 victory over Mexico.
The Three Lions youngsters are currently in India taking part in the prestigious competition, and they opened their tournament with a 4-0 win over Chile on Sunday.
Brewster started that game and impressed despite not finding the net, but he played a more influential role in their second Group F clash against the Mexicans on Wednesday.
England comprehensively outplayed their opponents in the first-half, and Brewster missed an absolute sitter with the goal gaping and the score at 0-0.
The 17-year-old striker redeemed himself soon after, however, curling home a wonderful free-kick to give the Three Lions a precious lead.
Steve Cooper’s exciting outfit pulled away after the break, with Man City‘s prodigiously gifted midfielder Phil Foden doubling the lead.
Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho added a third from the penalty spot before the hour mark, as England seemingly cruised towards victory.
Mexico staged a spirited comeback, however, with Diego Lainez pulling a goal back thanks to a kind deflectionm and the deficit was reduced further when he fired home midway through the second-half.
Despite a late onslaught from Mexico, Brewster and his teammates held on, ensuring they qualify for the knockout stages in the process. Their last group game is against Iraq on Saturday.
