The Spanish selection sub-17 had in his hands the opportunity to win for the first time the World-wide of this category, the only title that is missing to formative level in the national football. And the ones of Santi Denia were near after advancing by 2-0, but finish carrying a deserved tunda by 2-5.

And it is that England was really upper in the second half. The Barcelona Sergio Gómez signed the two goals of the combined Spanish, but the English showed that the vertical football that practise is extremely effective. Spain could not brake such gale and remained with a subcampeonato that knows to little. 

One of the heroes of the final was Phil Foden, player of the Manchester City that with hardly 17 years already is in the first team and is one of the predilections of Pep Guardiola. Obviously it does not go in in the plans of the Catalan technician with regularity, but aims high in the English group. They see him like a real promise.  

The English group, that is leader in solitary of the Premier, is scheduling without doing noise a project to half-long term really interesting with young players that keep growing to personal level. The aim of the club is clear, conquer Europe what before.

England goes seriously

"We have made history this summer. We think that the experience of our young footballers to compete to European and world-wide level will help them in his development so much in his club as in the selection and will help them in his stage senior". With these words has analysed Dan Ashworth the good results of the teams of the FA during this summer. The true is that the results seem to give the reason to those who have bet by this man of 46 years like manager of an ambitious project that has to carry to England to win the World-wide of Qatar in 2022.
