England secured progression to the knockout stages of the u17 World Cup in top spot despite defeat to Brazil in their final group game last week, having thrashed New Caledonia 10-0 and beaten Iran 2-1 in their other two fixtures.

Arsenal’s Ethan Nwaneri and Myles Lewis-Skelly featured heavily in the opening two games, with Lewis-Skelly providing an assist and winning a penalty, whilst Nwaneri scored one and assisted one.

The duo then played substitute roles against Brazil, helping England to score the one goal they needed to top the group even in defeat.

With the remaining group games all having been played, England now know their route to a potential final in December.
