Kolkata, Oct 8: England kick-started their FIFA Under-17 World Cup campaign with by showcasing splendid performance which helped them to clinch an emphatic 4-0 win against Chile in a Group F match at the Vivekananda Yuva Bharati Krirangan here on Sunday.
Star player of the match was Jadon Sancho struck twice (51st, 60th minutes), in a 4 -0 rout of Chile.
While Callum Hudson-Odoi (5th) and Angel Gomes (81st) scored one apiece.
For 77 minutes, Sancho was a sight to behold taking on defenders at will with his guiles. The Borussia Dortmund player, who is expected to leave England at the end of the group stage for his club commitments, was hacked down by defenders many times before Crystal Palace’s Nya Kirby replaced him.
However, It took England five minutes to take the upper hand. At the heart of the move was Sancho who accompanied brilliantly with Hudson-Odoi near the box with the latter slotting the ball at the far post with ease.
