New Delhi: England and Spain take on each other in the final of the 2017 U-17 FIFA World Cup at the Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata today. It is a big day for both these teams considering that neither has won the World Cup before. The game will begin at 8 pm and here you can catch the live score and updates from the game. Enrique Caceres of Paraguay will be the referee in the game.

A goal feast can be expected from two of the most aggressive sides in the tournament. While England have scored 18 goals so far, Spain have 15 to their credit.

England are playing in their maiden final in their fourth appearance while Spain have featured as losing finalists on three earlier occasions in 1991, 2003 and 2007.

It will be a repeat of the European U-17 Championship match in Croatia in May when Spain had emerged winners on a penalty shootout after a 2-2 stalemate in the regulation time and the Three Lions will be looking for revenge.

A win for England will also herald an unprecedented year for their colts as their Under-20 team had won the World Cup in Korea earlier this year while their Under-19 side were the European champions. (With PTI inputs)
