England humble Brazil 3-1 to reach 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup final

Kolkata, India (PANA) - Rhian Brewster was once again the hero of England in the ongoing 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup in India on Wednesday when he scored his second hat-trick in as many matches to send his country into the final of the tournament.

Brewster's hat-trick, with goals in the 10th, 39th and 77th minutes, downed Brazil 3-1 in their semi-final match played at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan stadium in Kolkata.  

His hat-trick in the 4-1 drubbing of USA in quarter-final match last Saturday lifted the England side to the semi-final.

And he was once again the toast of his team mates, bench and fans as his fine goal scoring form continued.

The Brazilians gave themselves hope when they scored through Wesley in the 21st minute to bring the scores to 1-1 after Brewster's opening goal.

However, the England side went ahead with four minutes to the end of the first half and Brewster put the icing on the cake in the 77th minute.

The second semi-final match later in the day will feature Mali against Spain.
