Brewster takes England into U-17 WC final

Liverpool player Rhian Brewster scored a second hattrick in two games Wednesday to send favourites Brazil crashing out of the Under-17 World Cup and England into their first final.

The striker, who scored three goals in the 4-1 quarterfinal win over the United States, floored the South American giants in the determined 3-1 win in Kolkata.

England will play the winners of the second semifinal between Spain and Mali in Saturday's final.

Brewster linked up brilliantly with Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden who provided the crosses for the match winner.

Brewster put England ahead in the 10th minute despite an attacking start by the Brazilians. Brazil forward Wesley snatched an equaliser in the 21st minute to set up a thrilling match.

But Brewster made all the running and put England ahead in the 39th minute, becoming the top goal scorer of the tournament with his sixth strike.
