Three Manchester City youngsters started for England in the Under-17 World Cup win over Brazil.

It was another fine performance from Manchester City's youngsters as they contributed to England under-17s victory over Brazil in their World Cup semi-final.

The Young Lions qualified for Saturday's final with a fantastic 3-1 win over their South American opponents.

Three City starlets started for Steve Cooper's side with captain Joel Latibeaudiere joined by club teammates Phil Foden and Curtis Anderson in the starting eleven.

Liverpool youngster Ryan Brewster stole the show as he netted a second hat-trick of the tournament to lead his country into the final.

From City's point of view it was Foden who once again caught the eye with another dazzling display.

So it was no surprise that Foden continued to bamboozle the Brazilian defence on Wednesday afternoon.

The highlight of his performance was a delicate Cruyff turn which allowed him to escape the defence and orchestrate a move that would eventually lead to England's third goal.

City keeper Anderson earned praise for a commanding goalkeeping display as the Young Lions frustrated their South American opponents on Wednesday afternoon.

Latibeaudiere once again captained the side and put in a solid display to lead his side to victory to keep his dreams of lifting the trophy alive.

Attention now turns to Saturday's final in Kolkata where England will face either Spain or Mali.
