Kirby's England See Off Brazil

25 October 2017

Nya Kirby featured as a late substitute as England's under-17 side saw off South American Champions Brazil to reach the World Cup Final!

Palace midfielder Kirby, who had scored the winning penalty to see the Young Lions into the Quarter Finals, was a late subsitute in Kolkata, replacing Manchester City youngster Phil Foden in the 86th minute.

Steve Cooper's side had taken the lead through Liverpool forward Rhian Brewster early on, before the Brazilians hit back. Brewster struck twice more to secure his second hat-trick in as many games to book England's place in the U17 World Cup Final.

The 3-1 win means they will now face Spain at 15:30 BST on Saturday 28th October. Best of luck Nya!
