LIVERPOOL YOUNGSTER RHIAN Brewster scored a hat-trick as England defeated Brazil 3-1 to progress to their first-ever U17 World Cup final.

Fresh from scoring another treble in England’s 4-1 quarter-final win over the US, Brewster was again clinical as the Young Lions booked their ticket to the final –where they will face either Mali or Spain.

Brewster opened the scoring in the ninth minute, firing home at the second attempt after forcing a save from Gabriel Brazao.

An equaliser from Brazil threatened to derail England’s hopes, with Wesley on target, but Brewster’s second, another close-range finish, restored their lead before half-time.

With 15 minutes remaining, Brewster was at it again, turning home after superb build-up play from England, ensuring that they will contest Saturday’s showpiece.
