Match Report: Brilliant Brewster sinks USA as England race to Semi-Finals of the FIFA U-17 World Cup

We'll have the match report ready for you in a moment! Don't go anywhere.

FULL-TIME ANALYSIS: In a game of equal chances, the USA will delve on the finishing errors they made in this game of almost equals. The North Americans were equally dominant, the reverse of what the scoreline suggests. Josh Sargent and John Hackworth, though, had a lot to learn against a clinical English side slowly making a mark for their country on the world map. 

Hope you loved the time with me, Ravish, who'll keep helping you with my insightful analyses in the future. Thanks for being a lovely audience.
