England Have Won The (Under-17s') World Cup

Shit the bed, in a moment that is the complete antithesis of everything you've come to expect from England in international football, the Under-17s have won the World Cup.

Not just that, the team came from 2-0 down against Spain to do it. Suggesting the kind of work ethic and bouncebackability that, again, you do not expect from a team wearing three lions on their chest.

The beat Spain 5-2, Sergio Gomez netted two to take the Spaniards up to 2-0, but then the comeback was on.

Rhian Brewster headed home just before half-time, Morgan Gibbs White took them level after the break. Phil Foden pulled them ahead at 69 minutes. And Marc Guehi and Phil Foden then decided it wasn't enough to just beat them a little bit. It was time to proper smash them.

It comes after the under-20 side won their World Cup in June and the under-19 side's victory in their European Championships in July. I don't want to curse it, LADs, but we could be entering a brave new world.

Here's what people had to say on Twitter:

Well done to the guys. An incredible performance. Bet you're gonna be gods in double maths on Monday.
